Tamarack Fire July 22 Morning Update. 50,129 Acres, 4% Containment, 1,213 Personnel on Fire

Markleeville, CA...The Tamarack Fire started as a lightning strike in the Mokelumne Wilderness on a rocky ridgetop with sparse fuels and natural barriers to fire spread. Friday, July 16 high winds caused rapid downslope fire spread. With this change in the fire, resources were quickly dispatched to the site. Additional resources were ordered, including very Large Air Tankers (VLAT), Single Engine Airtankers (SEATS) and helicopters.

The Type 2 Great Basin Incident Management Team #3 assumed command of the fire on Sunday, July 18 at 6 a.m. transitioning to the Rocky Mountain Type 1 Incident Management Team on Tuesday, July 20. Many Federal, State, and Local government agencies as well as organizations and businesses are cooperating to make progress on the fire.

This is a full suppression fire. Public and Firefighter safety is the number one priority. Minimizing impacts to local communities, private property and structures, natural resources, highway corridors, and recreation improvements are key considerations. Our intent is to keep you fully informed on the fire’s activities and our suppression efforts as the incident progresses.

Outlook



Planned Actions Continue structure protection efforts at all areas currently being impacted by fire and continue securing established line around Markleeville by mopping up and improving line. Continue line construction along northwest flank in DIV F to limit fire spread to the north towards Highway 88. Staff DIV T as resources become available and begin line construction at Highway 89 progressing to the southwest. Continue structure prep along Highway 395 from Leviathan Road to Topaz Lake. Prep structures in China Spring area. Look for direct and indirect opportunities to protect values at risk. Particularly threatened are values along Highway 395. Evaluate and establish additional Management Action Points.
Projected Incident Activity 12 hours: Very active to extreme fire behavior. High rates of spread with torching and spotting associated with both running and backing fire.

24 hours: Continued extreme to active fire behavior. Fire spread primarily to the North and East.
Remarks Acreage estimated from FireWatch flight: 0928 7/21/2021

    Nice fire. Not only is it burning uncontrolled to the east, nothing is stopping it heading south. In 2 or 3 days it will be at Highway 4. Another day or two it will be burning Ebbetts Pass. I hope we all have enjoyed the beauty up there, because, it soon will be gone.

      We all need to pray and to be hopeful not negative! It's not really proper to comment such things and one could start a panic. So lets just chill ok?

        Start a panic???? What world do you live in? Tell the firefighters to chill, before you know it, it’ll be in “your” backyard. Then, you can chill! Think this is funny, no it’s not funny at all! Grow up, please.

          For your info I live in a world of reality. Do you? Maybe you should just chill and to have faith. Yes its bad that it has happened and I see all kinds of theories and opinions online etc. None of us really know. The only one who really knows is our higher power and Supreme Being-God!

            Yes, we do have a higher power, thank god! Look into the book of revelation, (Old Testament) and perhaps get a eye opener. Me, old and had a great life, hoping the rest have lots to look forward to! Best wishes to all.

        Come back to the real world and get your head out of the clouds. This kind of crap is rampant everywhere, seems no one can do their job without contracting and hiring others to do it.

        This and a majority of other things that are very, very wrong are a result of Citidiots voting and making decisions that are deadly to areas such as ours. The foothills and rural areas of the state need more representation so our needs can be addressed. People sitting in cities should not be making any decisions for us.

            Sorry, I prefer to use my own brain, count on my own knowledge. Hope you're still not placing your faith in the Forest Service.

          Hey partner, the forest service has a job for me?? Well,well. I volunteered (that is for free) and did a clean up from spicer parking lot. Me and a lady did all of big meadow campground. What have you done?? I personally took 10 bags collected and finished the job! Get involved, you’ll feel much better.

              Like I said before, you have such a negative attitude about things. Some folks just complain about something and the way it's done, but they won't lift a finger! By the way, should I clarify and old verse and saying: "Faith without works is dead." Its good to have faith but it takes work by humankind. Also God helps those who help themselves. So maybe you should "jump on the bandwagon" and get involved instead of complaining or "dissing" people or entities such as the government online all day long.

        Don't forget the choking smoke in the news we are causing to many states all the way over to New York! Pollution/climate change (well this could have been prevented) other states should sue us because we are shortening their lives and making them ill.

      Unfortunately you are probably right. They are trying to keep it from heading up Hwy 88 and have no resources or time to keep it from eventually burning down to Hwy 4
