PRESS RELEASE BELOW FROM JOHN MILLER, PIO, USFS

Fire Name: Ken
Start Date: August 22, 2011
Start Time: 1:03 p.m.
Location: Northbound I-15 - North of Kenwood in Cajon Pass
Acres: 350
Containment: 40%
Cause: Under Investigation

US Forest Firefighters traveling along Interstate 15 today spotted a vegetation fire along the northbound side of the freeway just north of the Kenwood exit shortly after 1pm. The fire did force closure of Interstate 15 in both directions for a brief period and a closure of several northbound lanes into the evening.

The US Forest Service dispatched a full wildland fire response which included fire engines, fire crews, helicopters and airtankers. Firefighters from San Bernardino County Fire, Cal Fire and surrounding agencies, sent firefighters to assist, while the California Highway Patrol, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s, and Caltrans handled the highway closure.

The fire burnt in a northeast direction along the freeway eventually catching a power pole on fire, which surged and started a small 3-4 acre fire along Old Cajon Blvd, south of the Cleghorn exit. (Firefighters quickly knocked down this fire)

The fire spread rapidly up a drainage towards the Mathews Ranch, located east of Interstate 15, destroying one home, two shipping containers and three small outbuildings. Firefighters were able to prevent the fire from damaging the two remaining homes and numerous outbuildings at the ranch. The two residents home at the time chose not to evacuate.

During the height of the battle, over 600 firefighters consisting of fire engines, hand crews, dozers, and water tenders fought the fire on the ground and were supported by six helicopters and six airtankers.

One US Forest Service firefighter suffered a knee injury and was transported to a local hospital. One of the residents at Matthews Ranch became ill during the fire, and firefighters transported the resident to a local hospital as a precautionary measure.

Fire officials are hopeful that they will be able to fully contain the fire tomorrow evening if conditions remain favorable.

Fire investigators are continuing their efforts to determine what started the fire.

Airport Razz they gave all the money back to where it came from, as best they could, and the money they couldnt return was put on a current program. They had a big write up in the Grizzly and even told people if they donated they could get their money returned by x date.

Excellent news KK, dark ages are for no one. KB, Benny, I remember when this was a big deal but it was for a short time. Something happened that overshadowed it. Here is the intersting question. What happened to the $180,000 donated by the County, $380,000 raised and donated by Soroptimists, and the funds that were raised with a majority of the donation coming from Man About Town Campaign efforts?? Thats a lot of money that was dedicated to this project.

My text alert from SCE says the generator to temporarily power up FF has arrived in town and they're working on restoring power as soon as possible. And just when I was getting used to eating ice cream in the dark . . .
