Abc7 Facebook page has a live feed. Housing tract in front of it but it looks like they have some defensive space.
Reportedly structures are involved. A type 3 strike team was requested as well. Fire has made it to the ridge where the houses are, retardant seems to be holding the flanks.
I count 3-4 large homes on fire. Reported to be on a street named Coronado.
ABC’s Air-7 has counted 9 homes involved now.
Unfortunately the entire street appears to be on fire. A few homes on the street behind also. Looks to be close to 15-20 homes burning.
FIRIS airborne ETA 10 mins from chino
IC just ordered 5 type 3 strike team and 5 hand crews.
Battalion 36 Div Mike just requested 5 type 1 strike teams
LAC 1102A 1109A dispatched
Mapped by FIRIS at 183 acres.
From the live stream, it looks like forward progression has been slowed since it has crested the ridge.
Still lots of open line, and houses burning though.
