Bookworm is it out yet?
bullet RetiredRedHat on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:59:35
The really high flames were due to the trees torching. The entire fine fuel volume in the tree is consumed in about 15 seconds.

70 feet, not 7
bullet Dragon on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:52:34
There were intermittent flames shooting 7 feet high when it first started. I guess big propane tanks or gas lines? A couple times the big flame caught the top of a nearby tree on fire but the treetops put themselves out pretty quickly, thank goodness. Maybe the recent rains helped.
bullet aCATastrophe on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:51:39
Just want to thank everyone for the info.
bullet Dragon on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:50:08
Heard there were 3 structures involved, one guy airlifted I think with leg burns, I think I heard a horse had to be put down. =( They got on it fast - we called it in as soon as we saw it a bit before 8pm and they already knew about it.

Three houses burned on Matterhorn Cinderella. Read back in the Chatbox
bullet Dragon on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:46:40
Wind was never that bad. Smoke was blowing towards the west and the fire was moving that way as well but it only moved about a house length in the 1.5 hours we watched it. I only see one small flame left. It's nearly dead.
bullet RetiredRedHat on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:45:10
If that had been an October fire, it would have burned to the Cliffhanger and probably taken 100+ homes.
bullet Cinderella on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:42:14
What's going on in Crestline ..someone please..
bullet Bookworm on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:40:01
Thanks RedHat. It could have been a lot worse earlier. We had some crazy winds down the hill today. Seems like it has finally died down
bullet RetiredRedHat on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:38:46
Bookie, 5-10 out of the north.
bullet Bookworm on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:36:07
How is the wind up there?
bullet Bookworm on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:35:02
Code two usually means: Urgent, no lights or sirens.
bullet Dragon on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:31:03
We have a clear view from other side of lake and the flames are all low and embers. Definitely under control. Scanner said downgraded to code 2 (whatever that means).
bullet Bookworm on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:28:07
It's going to be a long season for sure John. Looks like you will have your work cut out for you. Really like your Twitter info

bullet Rain on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:20:30
question how can a fire be under control when its still has active fire and a shakey contaiment, i had always learned that control meant the fire was stone cold no danger of reflaring when did things change
bullet Bookworm on Wednesday 30 April 2014 - 21:20:01
Hose lay with shaky containment. (Hard to make out)

It's not that rare if they get limed up and the heat stays on for them to start leaking. Commercial more often then residential. Rupture just means they start leaking explosions are very rare.
