It started on fed ground down by the river, but pretty much everything that is burning now is state DPA or state ground.
Also, it was declared early last night that it was unified command.
XSA sent out three T1 OES engines early this AM, and they are forming up with a WT, and it sounds like they’ll be operating as a TF.
AA over fire, reporting area is socked in and unable to get rotors in. Will need to rely on ground troops for now. Maybe able to get some type 2s on one flank and an A-star into extract troops 2 at a time. This may be the crew from White Cloud that were unable to be picked up last night due to turbulence
