“200 acres as of 3:10 PM” so just do the math on what the current acreage is.

HTF just advised on KSNV3 they are unable to use aircraft due to the wind.

On Black Mtn nearby the wind is apparently blowing so hard the city lights in the camera view are looking like squiggles half the time from the shaking of the camera

The fire laid down nicely last night, my guess is the fuel is marginally receptive to fire still and as soon as RH went up/winds calmed down no active burning due to fuel moisture still being high.

Several tankers are working it now.

2,794 acres due to better mapping and 10% contained. Another red flag warning goes into effect tomorrow
