On Thursday Chris Jurasek's crew took several GeoCam photos from Air Attack 140 over the Lockheed fire, which has ramped up very quickly to a type 1 response. Our friend Francis Enomoto at Ames saw the smoke plume on his drive in this morning.

So far we haven't had any contact with the IC on the fire, so we don't know if they've accessed the GeoCam Share server to look at the data. We're hoping that some of the folks we know from the Sonoma/Lake/Napa Unit will deploy down there so there's a better chance to put GeoCam into action.

Two photos taken around 12:30 Thursday at the Lockheed fire, probably from 4500'. (Credit: AA 140 crew / CAL FIRE).
