Donner Summit – King Fire update

9/20/14-

Donner Summit Friends, you will start to see Fire Fighting equipment come through the area, heading down Soda Springs Road toward French Meadows and the King Fire. Pease do not be alarmed–the fire is not an immediate threat to the Summit or to the Cedars, the Incident Command Team and CalFire will be using the equipment many miles down the road to create “indirect” fire breaks–meaning they are creating defensible space fire lines well in advance of the actual fire.
