The CalFire Battalion Chief paid a visit this morning to let us know they’ll be parking some more engines up here. Water tenders were helping to refill the pond until about 3AM last night. The fire burned slowly, continuing toward the road. They’re positioning people so that when the fire reaches the road that’s where it will stop.
Turns out Dan Priano is a pretty good cook. We’ve been having some very nice meals. All our communication lines are open and we have electricity – and generators if needed. Locals are moving around in the backroads – the “Ridgerunners.” Nobody has gone Mad Max. We’re all staying in touch and safe.
No official briefings have been distributed through email since yesterday morning.
We had telephone contact this morning with Ross Curtis and the report from Apple Pie Ridge is that everyone is doing well.
