July 12 — the San Diego Union Tribune reported this morning that the Jennings Fire was no longer threatening Harbison Canyon residents thanks to the efforts of seven air tankers, four helicopters, about 250 firefighters and 11 hand crews. All of us at Helix would like to say “Thank You”.

The four helicopters pulled water out of Lake Jennings throughout the afternoon yesterday as the fire grew, and refueled in the parking lot at the front of the park.

The fire is not growing any more. Right now I see zero smoke and fire.
