At 8:24 pm Thursday, a call went out for a report of a warming fire on the side of E. Camino Cielo, approximately 3 miles up from Painted Cave Rd. Two members of the MET went to investigate in the patrol truck and were joined by two patrols from San Marcos Pass VFD. Thankfully, the campers seemed to have extinguished their fire and moved on, as nothing was found all they way out toward La Cumbre Peak. This did provide an excellent opportunity for a real time exercise and collaboration with our neighbors. Unfortunately, this also exemplifies and ongoing and increasing problem with camping on ECC. A huge thank you to San Marcos Pass and the WRA. It's good to know that we can have three patrol trucks up and about in fairly short notice.
