(Mosquito) - You may have seen this in the @watchdutyapp. This was my error & mine only. I lapsed in concentration while editing/creating the map on the Google My Maps platform & the perimeter was not where it was supposed to be. I sincerely apologize for that. Image
We've been looking for ways to provide maps in a simple format that people can view & scroll, without having to view older perimeters of the same fire. This appeared to be a good solution but is currently being reviewed for better processes & to ensure it doesn't happen again.
I can tell you that any information (scanner info, maps etc) I provide is in good faith, to the best of my ability. I never ever want to mislead anyone. No excuses. I apologize again to anybody who was able to view it in the time that it was available prior to being removed.

#WashburnFire (Yosemite NP) - Last mapped a few hours ago @ 1,821 acres. Just now looking to get HelCo back to the fire to assess whether copters can resume work (no copters or tankers due to visibility right now). Map via #FireMappers:
#WashburnFire (Yosemite NP) - There is a ridge they want to paint w/ retardant (possibly the one running east-west from yesterday near Wawona Point) & the air looks clear enough for it per the HelCo, ordering an Air Attack + lead plane back to the fire to confirm.
#WashburnFire (Yosemite NP) - Air Attack requesting 3 large air tankers & 1 VLAT back to the fire, they'll be painting this ridge below in blue, which was also partially done yesterday until visibility shut it down.

#WashburnFire (Yosemite NP) - Last mapped a couple of hours ago @ ~1,120 acres w/ 25 acre spot fire. Visibility is an issue today but lesser activity showing, only copters up for now & it looks like they're working the S/W side near Mariposa Grove Rd. ImageImage
#WashburnFire (Yosemite NP) - Perimeter now viewable on #FireMappers now (thanks @KeithJGw), includes that ~25 acre spot to the N/E, totaling just under 1,200 acres. Looks like the majority of the smaller spots are all part of the main fire now. Link > ImageImage
#WashburnFire (Yosemite NP) - Increasing fire activity & fire burning up slope to the east of Wawona Point on the ridge w/ the radio antennas, w/ likelihood of throwing additional spot fires out in front per radio traffic. Image
