Ensenada Fires Burn

Bajadock:  Smoke is definitely in the air this Saturday morning after Friday’s significant fire near Maneadero.  Noticed the burn yesterday at approx 11AM, as it looked like a fog bank.  But, fog banks don’t happen randomly that far inland.  My photo is at 5PM Friday from my Pub.  Map below.  There were several other fires in Baja Friday.  I’ll call this one the King Kong Fire, as that’s whom I spot in the cloud formation. 

Careful out there.

More than 100 hectares of vegetation were consumed by the fire until yesterday afternoon, as a result of a forest fire registered in the López Portillo ejido, which is located towards the Maneadero delegation, said Sergio Montes de Oca Ramos.

The head of the Forest Fire Department of the National Forestry Commission (Conafor) reported that 80 hectares of shrubland were of shrub, while the remaining 20 were of pasture.

At the close of the edition, fighters of different corporations and volunteers, achieved 50 percent control and 50 percent containment, with no reported material damage to homes or injured persons.

It was at 09:27 hours yesterday, when the flames began to spread in the area of ​​hills that is located to the east of the town, which is why an operation was activated with the participation of Conafor elements.

To enable the fire to be fought without major risks, as well as to prevent possible damage to the electricity supply system, employees of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) participated in the morning.

To the operativity were added elements of the Fire Department, with fire extinguishing machines from two stations, with the objective of providing protection to citizens living in the area nearby.

It should be added that, at the same time, a fire was recorded at Cerro del Vigia, also along the ramp leading to the Cetys campus, which were completely new when they were completely controlled and suffocated.

Security Message for U.S. Citizens:

Exercise Caution at Bandas Gruperas Music Events

April 28, 2017

The U.S. Consulate General Tijuana informs U.S. citizens that drug trafficking organizations have made threats of violence against “bandas gruperas”—musical groups which specialize in narco corridos (songs celebrating their criminal exploits) and the music venues that host them.  Each band tends to be associated with a particular drug trafficking organization.  Therefore, the bands are viewed as targets by competing cartels.

On April 2, a narco manta attached to a dead person was left in Tijuana threatening to kill Miguel Comando,who sings about the Arellano Felix Organization (AFO). Miguel Comando is scheduled to play Las Pulgas nightclub on Avenida Revolucion in Tijuana on April 28, 2017.

Given that the cartels have been willing to follow through on their threats against members of the bandas and the venues where they appear in the past, the U.S. Consulate General has advised its personnel to avoid this event and be very cautious about attending similar events and venues. Also, review local media to be aware of possible threats.

The Consulate reminds U.S. citizens to review your personal security plan, remain aware of your surroundings, including local events, and monitor local news stations for updates.  Be vigilant and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.



For the second time the municipal government of Tijuana requested the suspension of a concert that tonight would be held in a show center of the city for there is a death threat against the local singer Miguel Comando.
Just as he did last February 10 to request last minute that the concert of the musical group “The New Rebels” by the appearance of a narco blanket by which they were threatened, the government of Tijuana today did the same with The case of Miguel Comando, who also received a similar threat, although in this case the warning was placed on the body of an individual who apparently for that only the criminals sacrificed.


Before the threat, it was said that the young interpreter was offered the possibility of not showing up, for his safety, however he said he felt sure of not having problems and asked for the opportunity to make his presentation because he said “Las Flegas” is The trigger for any singer to achieve success, which repeated in a long video of 10 minutes with six seconds in which he tries to explain his situation.


Comando, who in his presentations conceals the face behind a mask or a handkerchief also said in that video not to be a drug trafficker, nor to belong to any criminal group, although he recognized to interpret “narco corridos” and to do it “for Tijuana” like other groups “lo Make for other states of the country “.

The fight between organized crime groups, which now has as its victims the singers of corridos, also caused the death on September 1, 2016 of José Alberto Cervantes Nieto, alias El Betillo, member of Northern Explosion, who was executed In Rosarito.Http://

The administration of Las Pulgas made it known simply that it canceled this concert by orders of the city council, reason why for the second time it called to its customers so that they appear by the return of their money.
