WILDFIRE: #MonumentFire Reignites as Weather Becomes More Erratic

Quincy, Washington

Around 1130 hours this morning, sources were reporting the original incident #MonumentFire [name has been used by many fire agencies, Law Enforcement and Media sources], that it had been completely contained and evacuation orders were lifted.

As of 1615 hours, we were beginning to hear firefighters on the fireground reporting hight temps of 103F, low humidity of 12% and winds picking up.  Usually, when we hear this – it makes cringe knowing what all three can do to an already damaged fire scorched are.  [As of 1830 hours, the temps in Quincy are being reported as 98F but we all know temps can see higher with gear/equipment & standing directly under the sun].

Unfortunately, that all too familiar image of fire burning again has come back to visit.  It has reignited and large amounts of Firefighters are yet, facing the dangers.

We posted a question on the State’s Department of Emergency Management Camp Murray Washington] for an update on the new info that had come to light, as no new details found on Grant County Sheriff’s Office or any of the other media sources.

It appears that several Law Enforcement Agencies like the WSP including EOC WA EMD, some Fire Departments and others have been using the same hashtag as us #MonumentFire while some are using #MonumentHillFire.  The morale of this post is that there is simply no new information but just for entertainment purposes, here is our response.  [This is intended not to offend anyone.  We are here to provide you all with true, up-to-date and accurate information just like anyone else.]

This is the response we received:

Washington Emergency Management Division We have no new updates from Grant County Sheriff’s Office – Tom Jones, Sheriff.

As an FYI.

We don’t monitor our Facebook Account 24-7. Most up-to-date information on Washington Wildfires can be found on Twitter using the hashtag #wawildfire

If you don’t have a Twitter Account, you can go to the website tagboard.com and insert #wawildfire into the search box and it will search across the area for you and a Twitter Account will not be necessary.

Tagboard. The social media hub for hashtags.
TAGBOARD.COM”

Hate to say it but they are following our @nwfireblog account. Maybe it’s an auto reply? Interesting response…. [We still Love our peeps at the State EOC and appreciate all of the long hours they are putting into these very active Fire incidents!]

Anyway, this is what we have been able to gather so far:

  • Higher temps
  • Low humdity
  • Winds picking
  • Fire rekindling

Some of the visual highlights being seen on the fireground.

Check out the view what firefighters are now facing.

The Puget Sound Strike Team posted this great video about 1720 hours ago of an Air Tanker dropping over the ridge.  Spectacular footage pf a tanker working to secure and protect a farm.  [Check out their Facebook Page for the video clip –> https://www.facebook.com/SouthPugetstriketeam]

As more information is received, we’ll post more details.  For now, this is all we have but want to end with one of our most favorite quotes:

“Unity is strength…when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.”

– Mattie Stepanek

[Editor’s Note:  “Thank You to all of our friends and followers whom are Firefighters,  in EMS, Law Enforcement, 1st Responders, Medical, Emergency Managment, Support personnel, Shelter Volunteers and everyone [sorry if we fogot anyone. It’s unintentional.]

“Your tireless efforts, compassion, dedication, endless hours of Saving/Protecting Lives & Property do not go unnoticed at the Washington Fires [#SleepyHollow, #Road6Fire and now #MonumentFire].

Though we are not there with you physically, we are there with you emotionally.  For those who cannot or will not say Thank You, we would stand on one of the hillsides and shout out our gratitude [okay, maybe not], but we really do appreciate what you are doing for the great people of Washington State and for those around the Country. We are truly proud of you all.  Keep up the great work!-Lisa]
