At approximately 3:00 PM on July 18, 2009 Eric Keefer, Law Enforcement Ranger for BLM-California’s Bishop Field Office was patrolling in the Bodie Hills area when he saw a lightning strike that ignited a wildfire adjacent to the State Park. After calling his dispatch center (the Owens Valley Interagency Communication Center) he got closer and realized the brush fire had quickly reached flame lengths of 10 to 15 feet, and was heading toward structures in the Bodie State Historic Park

Must have been why those loud firefighting planes and helicopters were flying over the Postpile last week.

They were actually part of the FBI surveillance team assigned to keep track of Vince.

LOL

I think it was Sunday 19th when the big helicopters flew over the Reds Meadow canyon. They make a lot of racket! I think they might be based in Fresno? Not sure.
