Per Deb Burgess of Chantry Flats
Here is an update which Taylor Roberts, an Altadenablog reader, says she just received today from Deb Burgess regarding Chantry Flats:
Here is an update: Supervisor Antonovich asked that assistant fire chief for LA County call me to talk about the Chantry area. Ron Watson indicated that, although some were not aware of our extensive community base (100 people), many of the locals were. The fire is estimated to take around 4 days to reach Chantry. That gives them some time to try and come up with some tactics to fight the fire on the west side. I said that he probably did not appreciate amateurs like us telling or suggesting how to fight the fire. He said that actually they do appreciate it. We know our canyon, the terrain, and where the defensible areas are. That was good to hear. He did say that they will try to defend the structures in BSC. This is a turn around from yesterday. I think all of our efforts to get the word out may have made a difference. Thanks to everyone.
Very important is the meeting tonight in Pasadena with the Incident Management team. They will give updates and take questions. I believe it is very important for us to be represented in masses to make a statement (or make a stand). If you have anytime available, please meet at:
