Filmore Fish Hatchery Fire Only One Day

The Filmore Fish Hatchery Fire I talked about yesterday was out by the afternoon. It only burned 5 acres. It lasted from about 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. when the last firefighters left the scene.

All that burned was vegetation. No structures were burned.

Winds stayed down yesterday. That was after days of high winds. It is lucky that there were no winds to push embers into the nearby hills as this fire was in a narrow valley.
