N40Y on I.R. mapping flight over the fire now.

Might be a bit of concern with the Red Flag Warning due for our and the Alder are from noon today thru 10 p.m tomorrow. Needs watching closely I’d say.

I spoke with the NWS a bit earlier and they told me they didn’t expect much wind activity directly on the Alder itself except to maybe bring drift smoke my way in Pine Flat and some down in the east side of the valley.
