CONDITIONS

Higher humidity and lack of wind kept fire behavior minimal overnight. Interior heavy fuels continued to burn and smolder. Fire perimeter growth was minimal. Limited access, steep terrain and heavy fuels continue to challenge firefighters on the incident. Tree mortality and dense fuel loads are contributing to isolated areas of fire activity and perimeter growth. The communities of Cascadel and North Fork, along with the Sierra National Forest, are still threatened and residents of approximately 250 homes continue to remain under mandatory evacuation orders. Damage Inspection teams have completed their assessments and PG&E will continue to work on restoring power to the affected areas.
