NOTE: CABLE CROSSING FIRE SIZE UPDATE:
The Cable Creek Fire, located near Highway 138 East, mile post 23, is now estimated at 270 acres. The increase in fire size IS NOT due to additional fire growth. Smokey conditions near the fire area last night made it difficult for observation aircraft to get an accurate size. This morning, smoke near the fire has dispersed enough to get a better look at the fire; however, this is still an estimated size and that it may be several days before firefighters get an accurate GPS reading. In addition to a more accurate size-up, the observation aircraft on the Cable Creek Fire located one small spot fire this morning, less than 1/4 acre in size and located about 1/4 mile south of the main fire. Air and ground resources are currently on the scene and are making good progress on it.
