Tags and Keywords

Incident Date: 8/3/2013

On August 3, 2013, at approximately 1830, the lead dozer spotted smoke in the creek ravine below his vehicle and others soon communicated by radio the same observation. The dozer operator immediately turned around, picked up the dozer boss trainee who threw his tools and pack in the cab then jumped in. From first spotting the smoke, a handful of minutes was all the time it took for flames to reach underneath the dozer with the flank crossing the dozer line. [State]: California
