Update from LAC; Chief 3 (AC3) is now in command. Fire is estimated at 300+ acres with 0% containment. Fire is also pushing North towards Dry Gulch. Extreme and erratic fire behavior.


Per AA, going direct with retardant is not working. AA is going to start building indirect line a few ridges over on right flank and is bumping up the retardant to coverage level 6.

Per AA approximately 1,200 acres
