Our First Fire

Live Oak Fire on 5/27/21

It started on Thursday afternoon when Jan and a neighbor noticed CAL Fire aircraft circling overhead.

We think it was a fire tracker and a tanker aircraft like those below . . .

Tracker

Fire Tanker

Next stop . . . Google . . .

Turned out that the aircraft were probably overhead for the Live Oak Fire which was already on the CAL Fire (https://www.fire.ca.gov/incidents/2021/5/27/live-oak-fire/) web site:

CAL Fire Website is a Superb Source

The fire is about 3 miles (as the crow flies) from us here in Idlewheels RV Park. Close enough to be concerned, but so far the prevailing winds are blowing South East, away from us:
