8/10 - APPLE FIRE GROWS SLIGHTLY - CONTAINMENT UP
(below, latest incident map as of 8/10)
Acres: 32,905
Containment: 45%
Estimating Full Containment on 8/17

SITUATION REPORT
Fire activity decreased overnight, and containment has grown to 45%. Fire activity has slowed enough that fewer resources are needed as crews push towards containment. While the efforts may not be visible from far away, firefighters continue to work to keep the fire in established control lines. In the north, crews are securing the perimeter by building fireline and carefully inspecting the area for any hotspots. In some areas, specialized crews will be using suppression strategies with the least environmental impacts in the wilderness. On the Apple Fire, one strategy in the San Gorgonio Wilderness is to take advantage of natural barriers, like rocky outcrops, for control lines.

Along the western perimeter, focus has shifted from structural protection to backhaul, the process of pulling excess supplies from the fireline. Equipment will be cleaned and repaired—ready for the next incident. Crews will work on chipping brush to reduce fuel load. Firefighters will also focus on repairing impacts to the landscape from fire suppression efforts. Patrol and mop up efforts continue to the south and east.

With increased winds forecasted today, all crews will be vigilant for hotspots and sources of spotting across the fire’s edge. As crews and equipment demobilize, these resources become available to respond to future incidents.

EVACUATIONS / CLOSURES
Evacuation Warning for All of Morongo Valley – including both sides of Highway 62.

The San Gorgonio Wilderness is closed to all use. The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail: Due to closures in both the San Bernardino National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management. The PCT is closed to all traffic between the Cottonwood Trailhead, near the community of San Gorgonio and Forest Road 1N101 (Pipes Canyon Road).

Geographically speaking, Boulder Bay is on the west side of Meadow Park. XD

Skypark is indeed getting hammered. Was there last Sunday, crowds were unbelievable. Did two runs & called it day.

What a rotten year to be a ski resort owner. You get shut down in the spring due to COVID while there's still 5 feet of snow on the ground and perfect weather, then again in the fall due to forest closure while there's still a month of good mountain biking weather. I guess that's a gift to Skypark, they're probably getting hammered right now.

Should move the forest closed sign again? They just move it back. Haha.
I have a plethora of giant (3-6 footers) granite boulders I could tractor down, if I had an opening dimension and permission. Hehe, too much work.. and none of my business anyway.

Rocks for sale?
"Based on national research, the average costs for landscape boulders are: Average Minimum Cost of Landscaping Boulders: $100 per ton. Average Maximum Cost of Landscaping Boulders: $600 per ton."
