The most recent information she just sent: the fire has grown to approximately 6,000 acres and is burning in timber. It is currently 15 percent contained and there are approximately 500 structures that are threatened.However, no structured are believed to be damaged or destroyed at this time.
The fire has moved further south in the San Gorgonio Wilderness Area. Due to turbulent winds above and near ridge lines, helicopters have been more effective than air tankers in slowing the fire.
The resources on the fire scene include 1,875 personnel, 91 engines, four air tankers, 16 helicopters, including those that are night-flying, one air attack plane, 31 crews, six water tenders and five bulldozers.
