Pfieffer Fire in Big Sur.

This past week became extremely busy as a massive fire broke out on Pfeiffer Ridge in Big Sur late last Sunday night. 22 homes were lost and over 950 acres burned through the hills just south of Big Sur Station on Highway 1 in Big Sur.

On Monday afternoon, I got some good access into the canyons and sent some photos over to the Associated Press, which were published all over the country. Below are a few of those clips.

The firefighters, including the local Big Sur Volunteer Fire Brigade, worked tirelessly in helping the local residents who were displaced by the fire and the Big Sur community was fantastic in making sure their friends and family had a bite of food and bed to rest in.
