Reports from From CNN fit right in with the information released by the Hudson Group in a telephone interview with Jason Goodman of Crowd Source The Truth Oct 11 2017:
“The three largest fires started between 9 and 11 p.m. Sunday, according to Cal Fire. ripping into neighborhoods when many residents had started to go to bed.
• The Tubbs fire, which has burned 28,000 acres in Sonoma and Napa counties, started at 9:45 p.m.
• The Atlas fire, which has burned 26,000 acres in Napa and Solano counties, started at 9:20 p.m.
• The Redwood/Potter fires, which have burned 21,000 acres in Mendocino County, started at 10:36 p.m.
“A fire starting after 10 o’clock at night, under 50-plus mph winds, under absolutely dry, dry fuel beds, every one of those fires had a fighting chance to get going long before our firefighters could even be able to get there. So they all grew into major fires very quickly,” Pimlott said.
Survivors said they didn’t know a huge fire was bearing down on their houses until the last second.
“Understand these fires started after 10 p.m. around midnight on a Sunday night,” Pimlott said when reporters asked about this issue Tuesday. “They burned so quickly. There was no time to notify anybody. These fires came down into neighborhoods before anybody realized the fires were occurring in many cases.”
The investigation remains “very early in the process,” Ken Pimlott, director of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, said Tuesday.
