Stanislaus National Forest - 2013
This fire is a combination of brush and timber and is the largest wildland fire in recorded history to strike the Sierra Nevada Range and is the 3rd largest in California. The fire
beginning on August 17th, 2013 is still active as of this writing in mid October. The first two weeks saw extreme fire behavior resulting in rapid fire spread and the loss of 112 structures. In this presentation you will
see some of this extreme behavior up close and personal as the fire runs through stands of timber crossing highways as if they weren't there. Total acreage so far is 257,171 or 402 square miles, very nearly the size of
Los Angeles City and that is huge.

Angeles National Forest - 2013
Extreme fire behavior is demonstrated as the fire is pushed away from civilization by a rare northeasterly wind event in May of 2013. On the third day a wind reversal occurs and drives the fire into the
communities of Lake Hughes and Lake Elizabeth where 53 structures including 24 homes are destroyed in a five hour duration of rapid fire spread in heavy old growth brush, grass and trees. Aerial ops include copter drops
and fixed wing activity with S-2's, P2V's and the DC-10. Total acreage is 30,274 or 47 square miles.
