APPLE FIRE UPDATE THU 8/6 9PM UPDATE
28,085 ACRES WITH 30% CONTAINMENT
[Snapshot below taken from Snow Peak Thu 8/6 at 9:45PM]

Current Situation: Firefighters made good progress in the Oak Glen area and were able to build direct line just below the fire. The fire is headed towards a rocky area. The smoke in this area was due to heavy fuels burning on the top of Yucaipa Ridge. The fire burned through heavy fuels in the Millard Canyon area, but stayed in place on the western slopes of Millard Canyon. Planes and helicopters built a line of fire retardant today in preparation for firing out a portion of the vegetation this evening. The goal is to build a containment line to prevent fire movement to the east to the communities of Morongo Valley and Pioneertown.

The fire has stayed in place in the San Gorgonio Wilderness to the north. Firefighters have made good progress with mop-up and backhaul of trash and excess equipment in the origin area of Cherry Valley and Banning Canyon; this area will be in patrol status tomorrow. Community Meetings: A community meeting is planned for the Morongo and Yucca Valley communities tomorrow evening; details will be sent out via a press release, Inciweb and San Bernardino National Forest Facebook and Twitter tomorrow after plans are complete.

EVACUATIONS/CLOSURES:
***NEW*** The Evacuation Warning in Riverside County has been expanded to include the area east of Whitewater, north of Interstate 10, West of Highway 62, and south of the San Bernardino County line

***NEW** An Evacuation Warning has been issued for the community of Morongo Valley and joins the warning for Forest Falls, Pioneertown, and Rimrock communities.

An Evacuation Warning is in effect for the area east of Potrero Road, north of Morongo Road and west of Whitewater Canyon Road.

An Evacuation Order remains in effect for all areas east of Oak Glen Road, including Potato Canyon and Pine Bench north of the Riverside/San Bernardino county line.

The San Gorgonio Wilderness has been closed to all use. An Emergency Forest Closure Order is in effect as of August 2, 2020. The order prohibits all entry into the San Gorgonio Wilderness and some adjacent areas. Additionally, all Forest Service recreation areas in the Forest Falls area are closed. Fire restrictions have increased across the San Bernardino National Forest. Please refer to the Forest web page at [Click Here] for additional details.

The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail: Due to closures in both the San Bernardino National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management The PCT is closed to all traffic between the Cottonwood Trailhead, near the community of San Gorgonio and Forest Road 1N101 (Pipes Canyon Road).

Smoke Advisory: By mid-morning, smoke will be headed towards Morongo Valley and remain in the area until late evening. People with health conditions sensitive to smoke should reduce prolonged or heavy outdoor exercise in this area today.

Evacuation Center: San Bernardino County residents under the Oak Glen Evacuation Order may contact The American Red Cross at (571) 595-7774. The evacuation center at Beaumont High School has closed.

Road Closures: In San Bernardino County, the following closures are current: Oak Glen Road at Wildwood Canyon, Oak Glen Road at El Dorado Park and Valley of Falls Drive at Highway 38.

Weather: Conditions are shifting with winds increasing over the fire area. Relative humidity is higher this morning but will decrease especially in the higher elevations where the fire is burning. Temperatures will be cooler today but the windy conditions will dominate fire weather concerns today.

Hi All -- It's been soooo long since i last worked with video.... I forgot how much effort it takes to work with, upload, and publish.... even if its a quick & dirty turnaround...

Anyways, I pushed yesterday's clips of Fire Boss crew doing dips at the lake and today's clips of air operations (refueling) at BB Airport up into a YouTube play list. YouTube allows for playback of the video at full-res (something that Google Photos doesn't provide) Have at it!

The heavy-lift skycrane is pretty impressive!

A big "Thanks" goes to Wingnut for providing me access to the tarmac!
