Crews reported that they had halted the fire’s forward progress at approximately 4 a.m.


    • None that we’ve gotten thus far, PatMac – at first we were looking for a possible lightning strike, then a possible transient camp… but we’ve gotten no official word on cause.

  1. I also think they were lucky that we got 10 minutes of rain right in that area yesterday.
    I’m sure that helped dampen things a bit.
