This afternoon the winds picked up and the Black Hawks were back working the north fire line for a while. Dan and I had noticed more activity this afternoon and wondered if that was the case. We haven’t seen or heard them in a while, so they must’ve gotten a handle on that right away.
Tomorrow and this is big news I think, they are planning on doing a burn out with a helitorch. This will happen if they finish the bulldozed line that they are working on. The helitorch will be dropping jelled fuel from tree top height onto areas that are NOT burned in an effort for that area to meet up with the area where the bull dozing has been going on and where it has already burned.
