Hello Big Sur!
Earlier today, after a conversation with Richard Cordova, PIO we put out an email that Cal Fire were planning a back burn for tomorrow, August 1 from Mount Manuel on the Western slope above the Big Sur valley.
I spoke with him again just now because of conflicting information being offered. There was a miscommunication and there is a plan to do a back burn but on the EASTERN slope of Mount Manuel but It may not be tomorrow. They are preparing for it but as of right now, it isn’t absolute that it will be tomorrow or the next day or when they will do this.
Apologies for that miscommunication.
