Thank you for posting. All still within the Rough Fire scar? Which (I believe) followed along the North Fork of the Kings River.

Div. A along the Kings river and Balch Road has multiple spots. Road 11S02 will be the fall back to prep and hold if needed.

Copters enroute and additional ground resources .

Auberry Helibase established.

2 Type 1 tankers building indirect retardant along east ridge top towards Balch Camp.

@15:10 spotting is over 20 acres and running to ridge…tankers now working spotting…
@ 15:20 Tankers can’t drop into this run or help, too many hazards and very rapid spread RROS…well established south side of the Kings River in section 22

AA15 requesting Lead Plane and a VLAT. Note an Inyo Fire is utilizing many air resources.

@ 15:50 IC and Div.A concur that this will quickly jump the 11S02 road and into Balch Camp Structure Group.

Day and night resources are swapping out. Really haven’t heard any other chatter. Cams look like the inversion still has smoke banked down.

Another hour or so the smoke will start mixing out, things have really cleared up in clovis since 9 am.

AA15 headed that way.
