Chris Ingram put this together from the report his relative, a San Francisco Fire Fighter, who responded to this event. It must have been an awful day – note the struggle with lack of water and dynamite. http://tinyurl.com/ojrl5us
INCIWEB – http://inciweb.nwcg.gov all federal fires this has closures, PIO reports, maps, meeting announcement and notes, lots of information on all federal fires.
Geographic Area Coordination Centers (GACCs): http://gacc.nifc.gov/ – 11 centers cover the USA and Alaska for the purpose of incident management and mobilization of resources (people, aircraft, ground equipment). Each area is an interagency management group made up of Fire Directors from Federal and State land management agencies. They support not only fires, but all hazard responses within their areas. These websites are jam packed with information on incidents, predictive services, etc. Worth the time to visit!
