Air Show at Bucks… Fire near Meadow Valley


There is a fire in Deanes Valley just outside of Meadow Valley about 3 miles to the east towards the Middle Fork area.  It was spotted this morning 7/29/17  at 9am and was at five acres then.  Heavy air resources and ground resources are on it.  We have scooper aircraft using Bucks Lake  to refill.  They start  lowering to lake level at Bucks Creek and skim across the lake picking up a load of water, then to the fire and drop the water , then return for another load.  Currently they are 2 in a flight working just behind each other.   Here’s a picture (more to follow)  this aircraft scoops 1,621 gallons in 12 seconds   WOW

 

BUCKS LAKE AREA   IS CURRENTLY     SAFE     BUT LETS BE VIGILANT
