The fire made some movement over September 30th and October 1st. First in the southeast direction, then to the northwest. It is moving through grass and oaks down into Mill Creek from Nacamiento-Ferguson road. It is now on both sides of N-F road and on both sides of the coast ridge. It is down into Hare Canyon on the west and in the upper Nacamiento river watershed on the north. On the south it is moving towards Alms Ridge. The plan is to contain it by the dozer line from Prewitt ridge east to McKern road and take it out to Fort Hunter-Liggett.
Here are some pictures of the fire behavior. This one is looking over Lucia lodge before sunrise on Sept. 30.
This is taken from the Mill Creek bridge looking up, morning of Sept. 30.
The wind was blowing the smoke to the northeast on Sept 30 but then it turned 180 degrees and started blowing it back over Pacific Valley on Oct. 1. Here’s what it looked like in the morning.
All that smoke that was going north since the fire started was blown back over the coast, including Big Creek.
