September 14 at 7am – Fire made big moves yesterday. Our livestream last night detailed the Mosquito Fire‘s spread toward Foresthill and east, with extended Q&A on forestry, prescribed fire, and how fuel and weather conditions yesterday helped prevent the fire from jumping Foresthill Road.
In the Evening Update, footage from today: We went out to the north side of the Mosquito Fire today. We share video and talk about what we learned about fire behavior in the 2013 American Fire burn scar.
