For three weeks, firefighters have been chasing the Soberanes Fire over rugged, hard to reach terrain near Big Sur. Along the way, they've had to leave some equipment behind. Now they want it back.
Officials asked for the public's help this week in finding missing fire hoses, pumps, gas cans and other equipment.
Incident commander Todd Derum said, "We've been humbled by the continued support that the public has provided and look forward to working with anyone reporting missing equipment."
Fire officials ask anyone who locates missing equipment to contact the Soberanes Fire Information Center at (831) 204-0446 or the Monterey County Sheriff's Office at (831) 755-3722 and a crew will be sent the pick it up.
