Yesterday, for the second time since June 5th, a drone was observed over
the Bighorn Fire’s southern perimeter. This unlawful event forced
the aircraft suppression effort to be halted, endangering the lives
of on the ground firefighters and the aircrews at a critical time
during the height of the burning period. 

Incident Commander Lathe Evans explained that the percentage of containment
has not increased, and acreage burned has increased largely due to this
illegal drone incursion.

What we’re sayin’ is…

Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack
Even little tigers lose their knack
When somebody twice their size
Can’t see the world through children’s eyes

Smoke and Fire Above the Catalina Foothills   4 comments

Smoke and Fire Above the Catalina Foothills (August 5, 2015) — Images by kenne

This fire, located in the Finger Rock trail area, was started by lightning a couple of days ago and was burning itself out, but the heat, low humidity and winds brought it back up today. This fire is about 12 miles from where we are located in Tanuri Ridge.
