I can't remember how many times I've come across campfires that were just left burning, some very close to water, including one that had begun burning into the duff and the roots of a tree.amy1300 wrote: No good excuse for leaving the fire burning, or smoldering, imo.
Well we were able to get into the cabin's subdivision this last Friday. Was sad seeing how many around our cabin had theirs totally destroyed. I think we counted6 that we could see from our lots. The fire did come up to the cabin. Burned all around it mostly the needles and ground cover. A few trees big junipers have fallen over because burned up the bottom and roots. We found two hotspots and surprised to find we still have water..so we dumped a lot of water on those poor old juniper trees. The observatory had fire all around it to but is all fine. The back corner of the lot buy the road has quite a few trees pretty scorched think we will lose those trees.. all in all we were lucky but had done some FireWire to the property..the wood pile is still there and the pile of branches that my sister stacked for us are still in a pile. Power, phone and water all work.Dschur wrote:Still waiting for info from the Coconino county but from a news 10 helicopter was able to snatch an image of the cabin and is still standing.. but could still have some damage ... some of the other satellite subdivisions in the area are getting their power turned back on but in Clear Creek Pines 9 we got the hardest hit so probably a few poles down.. there was a message to some from APS saying our area will be back on line on Friday... but first have to have a cabin...
