Fire Lines Held! – Walker Fire

Things went very well today. Fire lines held! There was active flame interior to Division Alpha which is fine, the lines holding is what matters. Tonight, winds are forecast to diminish quickly and humidity will start going up closer to midnight, way up, close to 40%. This is all very positive.

From here, the expectation […]

“Today is the test.” We probably heard that 6 or 7 times in this morning’s operational briefing. The windiest period today will be between noon and 4pm. It shouldn’t be that hot but will be dry. There is less heat in Division Alpha than yesterday but enough that spot fires could occur. Air operations are […]

From today’s 6am briefing. Before we jump in, it is crucial to not jump to conclusions here. It was a very comforting report but it is not over. They talked about finding a few pockets of heat as opposed to active fire. There are not too many pockets of heat, just a few here and […]

Fire manager are reporting 22% containment (black line). The fire is still pushing south. To the east there’s several burn scars if somehow the fire did something crazy in that direction.

Walker Fire – April 24 Update

Unfortunately, the evacuation is not scheduled to be lifted today.

There continues to be fire activity to the south. Containment was reported at 15%, all along the northern perimeter just south of Potato Patch. The risks focus on it moving south and then eventually to the west away from us. That’s a low probability outcome but […]

Walker Fire Facebook – Smoke As Expected

Received more information on this. The temperature, humidity and wind direction is exactly as forecasted.

It might be uncomfortable to see but from an operations standpoint, this is good.
