April 30, 2006 - Pump Wildfire
An unattended smoldering debris pile was found on Tule Lake National Wildfire Refuge's south western boundary in the end of April. Fire crews monitored the pile and determined it was safe to continue burning down. Discovered by refuge law enforcement personnel, the pile presented little risk and was safely handled. Drying conditions and close proximity to open expanses of wildland fuels requires every wildfire be examined for potential escape and be dealt with accordingly.
