Holding the Line on the Dolan Fire

By Cynthia McIntyreSeptember 29, 2020

When the Dolan Fire spread from Big Sur to Fort Hunter Liggett on Sept. 8, 2020, backfiring operations were initiated along Del Venturi Road to keep the fire from the cantonment. On Sept. 12 a "slop over" occurred when embers jumped over the road, necessitating a full response. The slop over burned 100 acres before it was contained.
