"Firefighters from Multiple agencies snuff another Fire near Bluff Lake in Big Bear"

The Champion Fire was reported at approx 4:27pm. Ben Brissey from BensWeather.com was one of the first to report this fire to 911 after seeing smoke from the north shore of Big Bear Lake. Forest Service, County Fire, Big Bear Fire, and CalFire units were dispatched to this fire and they made access to the fire at around 5:00PM. Air Attack 12 along with 3 helicopters were also used to fight this fire with some of them dipping out of Big Bear Lake. Fixed wing air tankers were immediately put on hold at the time of dispatch and were not utilized on this fire. At 5:56PM "Champion" Incident Command reported they had a containment line around the fire. Although the smoke is nearly gone, crews will continue mop up of the fire into the evening. The Champion fire burnt approx 1/4 of an acre and was located very near the "Bluff" fire which occurred 2 weeks ago today. That fire also burnt around 1/4 of an acre. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the USFS.

THANK YOU FIREFIGHTERS!

The "Champion" fire as seen from cams as of 7:15pm. As you can see the smoke is quickly lessening.

Thank goodness Benny and others saw this smoke so early and reported it!!!! Only 1/4 acre burned.... I didn't even know about the other fire 2 weeks ago. I'm thinking there are homeless back in this area? I sure hope this area is monitored much more than it has been.....

Oh, so I thought that I had a moth problem (20-60 moths each night for 3-4weeks). Well, as I went hiking along 2N10 on Wednesday, and cruised around the top of Snow Summit, I saw this at Chair 3... Then while heading home on 2N10, is saw more (camera doesn't do it just -- lots not seen by the camera) Yikes!! [Click Here]

Jilly, good contractors are busy. VERY busy. If your job is small they have to weigh taking time out from larger jobs that provide more money for their them and the crews they support. Have patience- or find a contractor who doesn't have a sterling reputation and so will have more time. BTW- Big Bear is actually better than many places. Took a friend in LA 3 MONTHS to get a contractor to come look at a remodel.

Crazy Tling! In the past month I've seen maybe 6 of those moths. However, the ladybugs were insane today, thousand of them all over my yard, a major swarm! I'll take that over the moths!

Weird, my cameras show the moths swarm at around 5am. I see a lot of bats in Sugarloaf gorging themselves. Good to have cameras.

DIY has a number of sites in LA basin and SF Valley. Probably is a corporate decision.

I haven't been that side of town for a couple days. Has the protester crowd got larger? If not, bet it was a HQ's decision.
