Re: Crown King Fire

Getting closer ....



And this is when I quit taking pictures and focused on driving, when I got a little further it got intensely hot. Windows rolled up and AC on and suddenly it jumped up 20* in the truck and the heat penetrated past the doors and windows like opening an oven door.

This one, watch how fast the pine tree goes once it catches.

No, I'm up higher flying air attack. Its what you would probably consider a forward air controller combined with C&C. Theres a forest service guy sitting next to me and we're both on the radios directing air and ground assets.

I saw part of the 6 pm briefing but the live feed was badly produced and couldn't hear anything being said. Can you share your opinion on how this is looking from your perspective ? What % chance does our town have? If you don't want to say in public hear I understand but if you could pm me instead I'd appreciate your personal opinion.

Thanks for your help in fighting this fire :-)

Re: Crown King Fire

I wish I could tell you but I'm still in Idaho waiting to be dispatched. Just based on what happened last June I fully expect to be called. If so, I'll check in here when I can and let you know.

Re: Crown King Fire

If you want to track progress of the fight on this fire, link and information below is courtesy of Polar Bear on Riding Arizona forum.

There is a great Google map on the weblink below showing the Gladiator Fire – Crown King area. It is linked to the Incident Information System website and you can zoom into the fire area coverage map to see the trails and Crown King road. It looks like the fire has crossed over and down the top CK switchbacks just out of town. This website is updated constantly so save it to your Favorites.

This has been a solid resource. Good facts and no rumors, fluff or drama.

both sets of switchbacks look to be burnt up now. I think when they let us back up, Im going to go after dark

Re: Crown King Fire

Containment was 5% two days ago, still at 5% as of this morning. Fire is spreading north toward the town of Mayer, Cleater and Pine Flats have been put on evacuation alert. The link in post 25 will give you up to the minute information on the fire.

Re: Crown King Fire

It's amazing the wind and heat that these fires produce. I'm originally from norcal, and this is almost a yearly occurrence there. I've been right up on these fires and driven through them when they're burning right up to the road, and let me tell you it's no joke. It can turn into a life and death scenario quick fastand in a hurry. If they suggest you evacuate, I would highly recommend it. I just spent ten days in Arizona last year, we did a couple days in the grand canyon, then came over the SF peeks down through flastaff, and then Sedona, took the kids to slide rock. I could just imagine getting stuck up there with a fire. That would suck.
