Marble Fire Continues to Chew Through More Forest and to Threaten Structures
The infrared map below shows a hot crescent leading towards the east and the Patterson Ranch with cooler areas to the south and west.
No structures are within the fire’s perimeter but several are in danger as the blaze continues its march east. The map below (click to enlarge) indicates dozer lines that are situated to protect structures in the area.
Cleanup continues along Hwy 96 at the western edge of the fire making sure that flames cannot come back to life in that area.
NorCal Team 2, a type 2 Incident Management Team, took over command at 6 a.m. today. They’ll be struggling to deal with hot, dry and windy weather with a potential for lightning through Sunday.
