I never did learn how to take short hand, so this really will be brief. Hopefully I will have a more detailed report later for you.
The hard work the fighters put in this weekend paid off in a big way yesterday, even with the high winds. Some hot spots flared up but were immediately taken care of. The big concern is about 10 acres of tag elders (kind of scrubby little trees that get all tangled up) that are smoldering and falling down out in the middle of the marsh.
The fire over by Engadine is being called the Mile Alley fire. I don't have a lot of info on it except to say that the high winds drove it quickly through the cedar stand and they were able to stop it at the other side. There are a couple of dozers on site and about 12-20 fire personnel.
Things are looking good. More later
