Only when the cell towers are working.  Early on in the Santiam Fire
the cell towers went down early.  With the telephone poles.

The Santiam Canyon is steep and narrow, the telco feed up the river was
an early single point of failure.  

Ditto for the fire on the Holiday Farm fire on the Mckenzie river.
