Status Update

Situation Summary

Today, firefighters are preparing for significant weather change that will last through Friday. Temperatures will be significantly hotter and drier with light winds from the north. Due to the remote location of the fire, approximately 60 firefighting crews will be transported by helicopter to further enhance fire suppression efforts continuing to close in on containment lines.

CAL FIRE IMT 5 is working in conjunction with the United States Forest Service and CIIMT 16 resources, and has assumed suppression responsibilities for State Responsibility Area land located south of Cottonwood Creek. The total number of resources stated above includes both Branch Ten of the South Fire and the Red Bank Fire incident.

Motorists should drive cautiously and always yield to emergency vehicles that are traveling on and off of the roads and highways. Fire danger remains elevated and everyone should continue to use extreme caution and refrain from daily activities that may spark a wildland fire. “Ready, Set, Go” is a user-friendly website that shows homeowners step-by-step instructions for hardening their homes and protecting their families from the dangers of wildfires.
