Glad you found us. We try to share bits of information whenever possible.
You inquired about the Star fire on the ElDorado-Tahoe NF; the terrain is rugged – very steep & rocky, and it is extremely hot & dry. Today the winds kicked up and there was major torching & fire spread with significant spotting.
For additional information regarding the fires in CA, the local media links are www.sacbee.com; www.thekcrachannel.com/; and www.kxtv10.com/. Read They Said, Ab posted a link to the ElDorado NF daily reports.
In answer to your inquiry about telephones and/or a commissary in fire camp – I “heard” the telephone lines are down; the FS cannot offer links except for emergencies – the Star is burning in a very remote area. If your “beau” does not call for several days, consider it “no news is good news”. Remember, his call will be short if/when he gets to a telephone, because there will be many others waiting their turn to call loved ones.
