THREE FIRES IN MEXICO... Potrero Monitoring - Rural Calfire on Alert

SUNDAY 9/26:  – Three fires in Mexico that began yesterday are generating smoke visible from East County. “We are monitoring them and we have a lookout out there.,” Cal Fire spokesman Mike Mohler told East County Magazine this morning. The U.S. Forest Service is also keeping watch, he added.  Although the fires died down during the night, concern remains if winds kick up today.  Cal-Fire & the U.S. Forest Service are closely monitoring the situation.
From Rural CERT Coordinator: The fire stations are getting lots of calls.  Most areas in our CERT region will be able to see the smoke from the fire.  It is near Tierra Del Sol (Boulevard area) on the Mexican side.  It is about 1 mile from the border.  An engine from Campo is watching it.   The (fire) stations in the back country have been put on alert status to respond and assist if it threatens the U.S.  Everyone be safe and be alert! ;-)
