Progress Report : Bosque Fires
 
Better now on Corrales side
with air support and dozers
Fire spotted across river
quickly moving
via islands here
 
Fire on the Sandia
larger
much larger
 
I cannot figure loss
 
No portion of fire
controlled
at this time
 
Did you say
Corrales
no portion controlled
 
Yes   No  Uncertain
 
Was looking damn good
around seven
sun getting lower
 
Winds subsiding
 
Repeat
 
Winds subsiding
 
Will they provide
suppression overnight
 
Yes     Yes     Uncertain
 
Walked perimeter of fire
GPS’d it
Five acres
at seven P.M.
 
Flames raced between
Romero Road
and  Harvey Jones Channel
 
Fire 40 percent severity
Remember Cabezon fires
 
Yes
 
Fuels heavy
in these landscapes
Response heroic
 
Romero blaze
fiercely contained
 
Community  fight
impressive
Chief M  phenomenal
 
Lara has
updates
volunteers safe
repeat  safe
 
 
We were lucky
 
Grandmother said
Angels seen herding winds
 
Just a saying you know
 
over and out
