For the first time firefighters now have a presentable and pretty accurate map of the fire perimeters which they now estimate to be around 3,500 acres. Today could be a rough ride. Last night the sheriff’s office sent out emergency phone notifications to several areas advising of the potential for high winds and a rekindled fire situation today. If the situation warrants, additional phone messages will go out with additional information or advisements and possible evacuation orders and notice of exit routes and shelter locations. They have four 20 person hand crews on the fire now with a couple more to arrive shortly. There are more than 300 firefighters including overhead, engine crews and support personnel. They also have aircraft available which they hope won’t be grounded should the winds be too strong for safe or effective water or retardant drops. The fire is still, at last word, only at about 15% containment but they expect to be hard at work today to boost that.
