"Pines" Fire Near Julian, Ca

August 3, 2002 - Ranchita Area northeast of Julian.  The fire that has been burning for nearly a week in the San Diego mountains  and claimed numerous structures swept down into Montezuma Valley threatening the town of Ranchita. Structure protection strike teams set up on homes in the area while dozer crews fought the clock to make fire lines.  Back fires were set in the afternoon but the fire was spotting clear across the valley on to the north flank where the next threat was the Ranchita Indian Reservation.  Fire crews from all over California were able to protect the structures in this valley which included the Sheriff's sub-station. Today one fire fighter and one inmate firefighter were transported to the hospital for minor smoke related injuries.
