Escaped Prescribed Fire at Camp Roberts

Late this morning while I was working at Heritage Ranch a controlled burn at Camp Roberts escaped containment and ran wild for a few hours requiring Cal Fire aircraft to be called in to assist. Over the course of the few hours it was running amok on the post I snapped the following images from my work site. The fire consumed 10,000 acres. Note in each photo the pyrocumulus cloud formations.

  1. I guess their prescribed burn was a little more extensive than they planned! (dave z)
