Description

An account of the progress and control of a fire started on 29 May 1983 following an unusually dry and mild early spring, and lasting 18 days covering nearly 10,000 acres of forest and involving losses of over $5 million. Measures included the use of bulldozed control lines combined with backfires, fire retardants and hot spot detection with a Pyroscan infrared heat-detection device.
