This dirt road once was a footpath. It became a dozer line for the fire. The fire stopped at the dozer line here. Just about 30 feet down from here, someone – I heard it was a neighbor – cut a path and the fire stopped before it reached this line. Lots of slurry here. The road is Pyramid Mountain Road. The neighbors didn’t care for it at all when it was put in a year or so ago. It did help the fire-fighting efforts.
