80 percent containment!

1 06 2018


According to Inciweb, the Horse Park Fire is now 80 percent contained!

It lists the estimated containment date as July 9. I incorrectly had June 9 in yesterday’s post. Who could blame me? Those firefighters are rockin’ their efforts on this fire.

It was pretty warm and VERY windy again, so firefighters are dealing with some rough conditions. I saw a couple of helicopters ferrying water over the fire today, as well as, for the first time, a Chinook-type helicopter. This Army brat loves seeing those big boys. πŸ™‚

The horses are doing fine. One benefit of the wind is that the basin is pretty well clear of smoke.

πŸ˜ƒ This makes me so happy! Those wonderful firefighters are making progress, and in the face of yesterday’s awful conditions, progress of any kind is amazing!

Those guys earn every penny that they are paid and then some. Last few years that job has become even more dangerous than it used to be. They deserve credit for what they do.
Glad the smoke isnt hanging around.
