A separate Tier 1 was dispatched to the second fire. Due to burning trees, Cal Fire support was requested and a copter, 3 hand crews, and engines responded.
John Whiteside had been monitoring the fire radio and responded to SJ Station 35 to take Fire Support Unit #3, if requested. En route, at 1721, he was paged to respond.
After arriving at the southern fire on Singleton Road, and setting up Rehab, SJ Med 30 asked if we could get another FSU to the northern fire. Don Gilbert responded with FSU #2 from SJ Station 6 to Tuers Road.
George Hoyt and Dan Wong arrived to support. After the fires were contained, and controlled, George and Dan made two meal runs to pick up and deliver 90+ meals to the fire scenes. After the southern fire was controlled and crews fed, FSU #3 moved to the northern fire scene to assist FSU #2. Both units were released at 2230. Approximately ten acres burned.
