This study explores the influences of two previous fires on 2015 Cabin Fire operations and vegetation burn severity. The Cabin Fire’s northern extent overlapped with a portion of the southern extent of the 2011 Lion Fire. Light and patchy fuel conditions in this overlap area, due in part to the Lion Fire’s effects, allowed the Cabin Fire Incident Command Team (ICT) to more extensively use monitoring tactics on this portion of the fire and to focus suppression actions elsewhere. Firefighters used the reduced fuels of the 2006 Maggie and 2011 Lion Fires as containment tools to hold or slow the spread of the Cabin Fire’s western and northern flanks and stop the fire before it reached the next drainage system which contained private property.
