The sharp road fire was just a few miles from the property boundary. Saw the four tenders headed out at 4pm. I was listening to the scanner, they were calling in everyone by 5 then calling off the dozers and extra tenders by 530. They made quick work of that one. I was getting a little nervous for that first hour, the smoke came in quick the wind was slow but in our general direction. Luckily it was about 50% humidity, it could have been bad.
To my knowledge that area and south hasn’t seen a big burn since 1948, you can imagine the fuel, it looks a lot like Bothe State Park..... fuel.

Yes we are on. I want to remove a couple trees in the way and chip it all. It’ll be Veterans Day weekend and we might be busy so most of the work on road needs to be done on Sunday. There is a large pine over one of our historic structures that can be addressed on Saturday. Those who have them should bring Alaskan mills. I have a bunch of redwood (unfortunately short length) that we can slab. We can always get back to veg management near the water tanks too.
