Update from the incident command post:

Overnight firefighters constructed a line all the way around the fire. Today’s main objectives are mopping up and patrol. There is still a lot of work to do. All evacuations have been lifted. CAL FIRE requests that only residents be in area. All others, please stay clear due to heavy fire equipment presence in area.

Also, please be aware of one’s surroundings. It takes very little to start a fire in these current conditions. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

September 14, 2014 at 9:06 AM Daytime operations are resuming, there is currently no air tanker over the fire but helicopters are on scene and will resume their bucket work. Air tankers are available at the Grass Valley Air Attack Base if the fire heats up.

There has been no change in containment overnight. Still at 30% – firefighters reinforced the containment lines around and near homes as this is their first priority, with firefighter and public safety in mind.
