It’s basically marching through Paradise east to west. Various fingers of fire throughout the town, not really a flame front. One on the south end of town that impacted hospital earlier today. Middle is impacting Pearson Road area. Another one north impacting Bille at Skyway now. 1145. Calfire and LE grabbing people out of cars on Skyway and sheltering them in Walgreens at 1145am. A lot of fire impacted skyway between wagstaff at clark about an hour or so ago.
I’m focused on family in gridlock at moment so not aware of bigger picture, but it’s making it’s way into the Honeyrun and Butte Creek Canyon areas. Spot fires. Conditions still unflyable for fixed wing.
