Rate of spread:moderate
Report on Conditions:establish column of smoke mid-slope on the NE facing slope in timber (Ponderosa)

Definitely building. Wind and slope aligned even if it in the NE facing slope. Access will be slow. Now air assets yet but they would have a clean shot at the fire.

Nothing on the sierra front media page yet:
Possible scanner (not sure if it does USFS freqs or not):
edit: it doesn’t sound like that scanner is picking anything from this up.
Visible on the Babbitt Peak, NOAA Reno, Peavine Peak, and Virginia Peak Cams.
I appears that the fire topped one ridge, traversed a drainage and is working up the next ridge. Wind is still ENE and slope aligned.
There is no HTF-feed on broadcastify. Unfortunately.
T-912 and T-16 enroute…
Per Sierra Front, this is the Evans fire, 35-80 acres
Fire is reaching the top of that second ridge. There is a little bit of a flat past that ridge.
There are spots out in that flat.
Fires do have a strong tendency to run hard downhill in the afternoon there. Hope everybody is heads up.
