This report contains the results of a one week assessment of fire behavior, vegetation and fuel loading and consumption, and fire effects to vegetation and soil resources for Division D that evolved to be Division F on the Aspen fire. The Aspen fire started by lightning on July 22th, 2013 below Stump Springs Road north of Aspen Springs on the Sierra National Forest in the vicinity of the San Joaquin River between Huntington Lake and Mammoth Pool Reservoir and west and north of the Kaiser Wilderness on the High Sierra Ranger District. Fire behavior, pre- and post-vegetation and fuel conditions were measured at six sites nearby Stump Springs Road from July 26 to August 4, 2013. Fuel Moisture samples were gathered in one area on Division D/F and processed at the District Office. The Calaveras Wildland Fire Module joined and trained with FBAT on fire behavior equipment and fuels/vegetation inventory techniques and were utilized throughout the Aspen Fire during FBAT efforts and for other incident objectives.
