Images: Soberanes Fire Incident Base

The Soberanes Fire incident base is located on the Rancho Canada Golf Club property off Carmel Valley Road. The two golf courses on the property are in the process of being shut down and donated to conservation concerns. In the meantime the property will act as a perfect spot to house a couple of thousand or more firefighters and equipment. I was able to capture a few images from the periphery of the camp. These images give a slight perspective on the setting.

The ‘camp’ has only been in operation for 24 hours but in that short time has become a self contained city of its own. Security has been established on Carmel Valley Road and no one but authorized personnel can walk the property.

  3. Thank you, Mike.
    Excellent.

  4. Firefighers are my heroes! Two firefighter/paramedics literally saved my son’s life! I am thankful that the firefighters are finding safe harbor in Carmel Valley, my family “home” since 1960!

  5. Unbelievable the golf course just closed.

  6. Drylake, it was scheduled to close by end of 2017 or sooner. The east course is open for play. Here is an article that describes the land deal. http://www.montereyherald.com/article/NF/20160426/NEWS/160429845
