Vegetation Fire at bottom of Willow Creek

11:00 pm – A vegetation fire broke out near Treebones and the bottom of Willow Creek around 10:20 or so during that last round of lightning strikes all around here.  BSVFB was first on the scene. LPF 16 was dispatched, as well as Cal Fire units from both San Luis Obispo and Monterey County. Jon Knight was giving Martha Karstens a report when I called her back. Saying there is NO RROS (rapid rate of spread) which is a good thing. Will stay up and report for the next hour, then hopefully, off to bed.

New Wildfire MM 1 11.00 WILLOW CREEK ROAD M . BC11LPF BC12LPF CRW1LPF E319LPF UT17 . . . 35.887 x 121.459

the good news is I have received two short but strong downpours since then.

there are also reports of fires in Carmel Highlands and Carmel Valley, but I have no details.

  1. I’ll stay up with you.

  2. I have a feeling I will too. And a lot of folks.

  3. 12:21 Pouring in Hollister. The radar map looks good for Willow to Plaskett as well.

  4. I fell asleep shortly before midnight, but back up at 1 … Just for a bit.

  5. Yup, we had a few downpours as I was falling asleep. That’s a good thing. 😉
