The fire got away from us on Thursday. This happens from time to time so we are always prepared. Normally we would take care of spots like this with leaf blowers, fire rakes, and water. But we happened to have a #bulldozer
handy and one of our guys needed more experience plowing a break. We call them "prescribed" burns, not "controlled". We don't want to give ourselves the illusion that we are really in control of the flame. This is one that it killed me to put out, it was a beautiful backing fire going down the hill, it would have been great for the understory.
