Small fire causes power outage last night for my daughter and son and friends


Small wildland fire contained near Lower Lake



LOWER LAKE, Calif. – Ground and air resources were called in from the Rocky fire to fight a small wildland fire that burned near Lower Lake on Friday evening.

The fire, in the area of Seigler Canyon Road and Highway 29, was dispatched shortly after 5:30 p.m., according to radio reports.

Cal Fire air tankers and helicopters quickly arrived at the scene of the fire, which was burning in grass and brush, under high tension power lines which were said to be arcing, radio reports indicated.

Cal Fire spokesman Dominic Polito said the fire was held to three acres.

Shortly before 7 p.m., a temporary power outage occurred in parts of Lower Lake and Clearlake, according to Pacific Gas and Electric spokeswoman Jacqueline Ratto.

Ratto said about 6,200 customers were impacted by the outage, which was resolved later in the evening.

She said the outage was attributed to fire retardant being dropped on a power transmission tower.

Radio reports indicated that St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake had to run on generator power for a short time because of the outage.

At least one Cal Fire unit was remaining on scene overnight to monitor the area, radio reports stated.

My daughter texted me from her phone about the power outage, so I am not sure how long the power was out. I will add that information today when I hear from her. The power was off until 9:30 PM that night. [August 7,2015]

Rocky Fire Update - day 10

Rocky Fire Update - Day 10

Lots of good news with no new fire growth, roads to be opened again, YAY!!!!!!

Rocky fire acreage holding steady, containment increases; new repopulation phase, highway reopening set for Friday - bit.ly/1KUzgdO‪#‎RockyFire‬
THURSDAY, 06 AUGUST 2015 20:40 ELIZABETH LARSON
LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – With no new acreage increase on the Rocky fire and a steady increase in containment, officials began to allow some evacuees to go home on Thursday, with more displaced residents to be allowed home Friday and area highways to reopen.

Cal Fire's Thursday evening report on the fire said acreage remained at 69,600, with containment up to 45 percent. Full containment is expected on Aug. 13.

On Thursday, the Rocky fire's eighth day, Gov. Jerry Brown visited with officials at the Cowboy Camp Trailhead in Colusa County to get an update on the efforts to fully contain the fire, the largest now burning in California.

There were no reports of any additional structures burned on Thursday, with the total count remaining at 96 structures destroyed – 43 residences and 53 outbuildings – and eight structures damaged.


Improving conditions led officials to report on Thursday night that Highway 20 and Highway 16 are expected to reopen on Friday.
