Lick Fire Day 3

One of the unique aspects of the Lick Fire a webcam from above points at the action. This morning the camera shows us a sleeping beast waiting for it’s wake up call from nature. Just beyond the peak in the foreground are a few hundred men and women scraping the ground on a steep grade. Daybreak on the fire line is a special time. A time to stop for a moment and look around. Later as the day heats up and the winds perk up a different mood sets in.

The fire has consumed 10,000 acres. CDF/Cal Fire has assembled an army of 1,700 to combat the flames.
More as the day progresses.

    I’m a uniformed volunteer at Henry W. Coe State Park. My husband and I volunteer about 100 hours each year up there. We love that park and appreciate all of the hard work of the firefighters who are making a stand up there.Yes, fire plays a role in a healthy ecosystem, but it’s always sad to see so much damage done in such a short time. I wish you luck wrestling this beast to the ground. And just wanted to say that those of us who love Coe Park are grateful.
