The Big Bear Emergency Operations Center (EOC), Mountain Mutual Aid met this evening for a briefing on the Old fire and the strategy for saving Big Bear. The federal government has allocated additional resources to Big Bear. There are around 2000 people arriving to battle this fire. The Number one priority if keep the fire out of the Big Bear Valley. They described the arrival of federal help as; The Cavalry has arrived! The plan of attack is to direct the advancing fire away from fuel sources and away from the Big Bear Valley. The plan also includes trigger points where they will remove all but fire fighting personal. It is at that trigger point when we will then shut down and evacuate the station and no longer update this web site. Tomorrow will be a long and difficult day for everyone involved and so the advice was for everyone to rest tonight and prepare for the fight of a lifetime tomorrow. We are going to follow the same advice. After 9:00 PM tonight we will not update the radio report or this web site, in addition we will not answer the telephone. We will begin the day very early to start doing updates. We will see you in the morning unless all hell breaks loose overnight. This is the latest information that we have as of 8:45 PM, 10/29/03. The smoke from the fire is overwhelming the mountain communities and has impaired reconnaissance efforts to determine the movement and speed of the fire. At this time the best estimates is that the fire is around 3 to 4 miles west of the Big Bear dam and 6 miles west of Fawnskin. There are three fronts on the fire approaching Big Bear. It is moving east from the north side of Butler peak, as well as north up bear creek toward the dam in addition from the Santa Ana Canyon. The winds have been heavy today gusting over 40 MPH. We can expect that to continue tonight through Thursday at 9:00 PM. The tempters are dropping and the humidity has been on the rise with a moist marine layer pushing into the Mountain Slopes. This should help contain the fire. In addition there is a chance of showers this weekend and the higher elevations could even see a light dusting of snow.

Gee- Wilderness in Northern Calif means that there can be no motorized or mechanized item of any kind in there. Hiking, Horses, only. No cars, trucks, or even mountain bikes.

And I bet if they haid their way, the road apples will be declared illegal.

This evening when I left my house in La Canada there was a mist on the windshield - enough that I had to use the wipers. So maybe it will be heavier tonight up on the mountain. Our prayers are with all of you up there on the mountain.

Hi All
Had to get some much needed sleep due to busy days and pulling night duty..then I had church tonight. Lots of prayers going out to our FF heros. Reading the posts here and hearing the bad news from Arrowhead as I was driving home.
