Another fire started on Plaskett ridge rd!

The road has been closed for a few months in an effort to stop people from camping in big sur. This is the second fire during the closure of the road. There had not been a fire on the Plaskett Ridge road for many years, I am thinking 20 years ? Is it possible the campers were actually preventing the fires? :^)

Plaskett Fire

Post by Alladin »

Does anyone know what started the Plaskett fire, I saw this exchange on the Big Sur Kate website which implies it was started by campers, is that true?

Having Plaskett Ridge Rd open to the public during the dry/fire season is like
leaving a loaded gun on the table when you go out, leaving your children alone at home.
It could be creating paying employment for the coroner & undertaker
– just like jobs for the firefighters-
or, it could be ruining a lot of lives & homes for a lot of people & animals.
