I have heard reports of fire line mitigation being done in Anastasia Canyon. The next day I heard that there is an evacuation warning up to Chews ridge. Hopefully they are putting a stop to the mitigation, it would be a shame to have two dozers, one mitigating and one removing mitigation on the same fire line.

Dolan Fire/ Carmel Fire

Postby Alladin on Tue Aug 18, 2020 9:31 pm

The Dolan fire is a new one today. Dolan Ridge is just north of the north fork of Big Creek.
Sounds like Lower and Upper Bee camps will get the torch. The "Cedars" may be lost.
That area was spared during the 2008 and 2016 fires.
Next, if the "carmel" fire moves west/south-west it could cross the carmel river near the headwaters of the former San Clemente Dam. If it gets into the Pine Creek watershed then expect trouble for Ponciano Ridge and the northern Ventana. A report said they had stopped air-support on the Carmel fire because of heavy smoke from the "River Fire".

What a mess.
