July 14th 2004 5:32 am. First calls and response to waterfall fire. Just a small plume of smoke. 11:34 am crews sit at the top of kings canyon arguing whether it is Carson City or Forestry jurisdiction. 11:50 am fire is the size of small back yard but still no crews at seen due to jurisdiction. 2:05 pm 94 degrees ambient, thermal's start to develop, winds in the Sierra's plus atmospheric conditions create 40 mph winds. 2:15 pm Fire blows up, FD looses two trucks jammed into dead end road due to flames. Numerous men escape with their lives. 2:31 pm homes are lost one after another. No Air Support was called in via preparation. 3:50 pm fire shifts south, business and house lost. July 15th fire shifts north and burns back across itself across Sierra's. 5:00 pm west side of Carson evacuated, fire threatens subdivisions that have been there 40 years. 8:35 pm to July 16th, fire now rages to Community College and into timber ridge housing development, burns down numerous houses. July 17th 2004, fire burns to deadhead in lake view estates. Someone tell me how the hell were the firefighters the hero's in this scenario?
