Firefighters are focused on preparing and defending structures in the area of Denny, Dailey and Hoboken. They are also maintaining access into Denny after a large tree fell across Denny Road last night. There are many hazard trees throughout the fire area posing a danger to firefighters and motorists. Smoke has decreased visibility in the fire area. This has prohibited the use of aircraft over the fire. Smoke conditions may also limit visibility on local roads and highways. Motorists are urged to use caution when travelling in the area due to the smoke hazard and the potential of firefighters working along the roadways. There are 18 fires in the complex. With the potential for new starts, and as fires grow together that number is expected to change. There is a chance of dry lightning in the forecast. Firefighters are prepared for initial attack in the immediate area should the need arise. The fire is being managed by California Inter-Agency Incident Management Team 3 under the command of Mark von Tillow. As additional resources arrive the current focus will expand to address other areas of the complex.
