10 plus acres going in Jarupa Valley area in Riverside City… Fire is wind driven with offshore winds. The fire is a 3rd alarm and IC has requested fixed wing. The fire appears to spotting and running through some structures. It was started from a traffic collision or off road accident… Decent column showing on this Cam.
Looks like it started from a car fire.
IC reporting immediate structure threat. has ordered 10 additional engines. Reporting without Tankers arriving soon they will start losing structures. The homes threatened are on Tyler and Mitchell. There appears to be a delay on the Tankers, i’m guessing too windy and turbulent to fly.
Edit- AA- 310, T-72, T-93 are going to en-route from Hemet.
Those Santa Ana’s aren’t messing around!
Aircraft line up: AA310, H301, H305, T70, T72, T93
IC just made a request for a Command Channel from South Ops, presumably a VHF one with Riverside mainly being UHF still.
Intel 24 has it mapped at 17 acres, so not making any big pushes.
All aircraft released. Updated size is 22.6 acres.
