Battle Creek Fire, Day Five

26 Jul

Thankfully, the fire seems to be ending not with a bang but a whimper.  We had some rain yesterday, and the Forest Service reports 80 % containment with no growth. It has downgraded the fire from a “Type III incident” to a “Type IV Incident” which I think is less serious.  It describes the current state as “smouldering.”  My friend Alex is surely giving a sigh of relief, since her home, described by the FS as an “isolated cabin”, has dodged this particular bullet.  We were working sheep a couple of miles from the epicenter today, and nary a smoke plume was spotted.
