The weather here is cool, with little wind. The air is quite hazy. The fires are reported to have been quiet overnight.
We expect a group of 65 firefighters to arrive at Tassajara around lunchtime to stay for three nights. We assume they are coming to help prepare the site for if the fire arrives. The group comprises 2 engine crews, 30 inmate firefighters and 21 union men.
I remember being impressed by the amount of work the inmate crews did at Tassajara for the Kirk Complex fire - working for early parole, and $1 an hour when they're on a fire-line.
There are also several dozers staging on Tassajara Road before starting work on reworking the old fire-lines up on the ridge.
11:15 update: 4 dozers have moved on to the ridge, 1 unloading from the truck here at Jamesburg.
