Conflicting reports coming in:

Deadwood underburn has rekindle in numerous spots for 2-3 acres and 6" flame lengths, requesting ATVs to punch line around them individualy
.
Also possible report of fire off Chickenhawk, 1.5mi from access near Seed Orchard in private down in drainage for 1/10 ac.
Looks like it’s towards El Dorado canyon or Volcano.

Patrol unit making access, 2 engines en route from Deadwood RX

AA Requested at 0832 to help ID

Further confusion -
Now calling it the “Deadwood” Incident, but the lat/long given (39 05.88N, 120 4514W) puts it over the “Divide” underburn.

The North Divide RX appears to be putting up good smoke again today, unclear as to if that’s intentional or not as of yet.
