Three Days, Many Fires; BVFD responds to Garberville Lightning Complex

With hundreds of lightning strikes recently in the area, mostly to east of Briceland, local fire agencies responded to dozens of reported fires over the last few days. Fortunately there were significant amounts of rain associated with these thunderstorms and many of the fires did not get a chance to grow much before they were put out. However, there were several that did grow in size and required extended efforts to contain. Water Tender 5466, Engines 5436 and 5446, as well as BVFD command staff assisted on multiple fires.
