Calfire NEU has it at 478 acres on Placer side and 100 acres on Eldorado side as of 03:26

Cool community church, 863 Cave Valley Rd has been opened as evac center on Eldorado side.

Staging some incoming resources at PCWA property at the old Mill site in FH. This is the usual ICP for TNF fires in this area. IE American, Ralston and the last days of the 2014 King fire

It started on fed ground down by the river, but pretty much everything that is burning now is state DPA or state ground.

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
