Prevention Top Priority

The controlled burn on Palomar was a success.  After nearly 6 inches of rain, forest service, forestry and fire department crews burned prepared piles around the clock this week.  The timing was perfect, just as they were finishing up, we were treated to another couple inches of rain.

Thanks everyone who worked the long hours to give a good buffer to the Crestline and Birch Hill cabin area.

  1. I saw the flickering flames from Fallbrook in early evening walks. Thanks to your newsletters, I knew what had been planned. So did the controlled burn people need to cover their piles against the first rainstorm to keep them dry? -Bob
