THE LATEST MAPPING SHOWS THE FIRE HAS NOW BURNED MORE THAN 48,000 ACRES. CONTAINMENT IS STILL AT 10%. ALMOST 6,000 STRUCTURES ARE IN DANGER. >> THE LATEST ACRES BURNED, IS 2000 MORE THAN THIS MORNING’S UPDATE. AND FIRE OFFICIALS SAY, THEY PREDICT THAT WILL GO HIGHER. >> LET’S GO OUT TO LIVECOPTER3. THEY’RE HEAD TOWARD THE FIRE. IT’S STILL PUTTING UP A BUNCH OF SMOKE. SO, WE’LL SEE HOW CLOSE THEY CAN GET. WE ARE ALWAYS OFF RIGHT NOW AND IT LOOKS VERY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE SAW LAST WEEK BUT STILL A PRETTY CLEAR LAYER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SCREEN OF SMOKE. IN THE MEANTIME, WE HAVE LIVE TEAM COVERAGE FOR YOU. CHIEF METEOROLOGIST MARK FINAN, STANDING BY WITH WHERE THIS FIRE IS HEADED. >> BUT LET’S START WITH KCRA 3’S LYSEE MITRI LIVE IN MICHIGAN BLUFF, WITH A LOOK AT THE WORK CREWS ARE DOING TODAY. >> RIGHT NOW WE ARE SEEING UTILITY CREWS AT WORK HERE IN MICHIGAN BLUFF. THIS IS WHERE THE FIRE CAME THROUGH LAST WEEK SO SOME OF THE UTILITY CREWS NOW FOLLOWING UP AFTER THE FIRE HAS GONE PAST HERE NOW, MOVED NORTHEAST. AS FAR AS CONDITIONS TODAY, YOU CAN JUST SEE THE THICK SMOKE THAT HAS SETTLED OUT IN HERE. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT HAS KEPT TEMPERATURES PRETTY COOL THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON. WE EVEN SAW SOME RAIN ON OUR DRIVE A COUPLE HOURS AGO. OFFICIALS SAY THE NORTHEAST PART OF THE FIRE HAS BEEN THE MOST ACTIVE. THAT’S WHAT THEY CONSIDER THE HEAD OF THE FIRE RIGHT NOW. WE SAW FLAMES CRAWLING ALONG THE BRUSH AND SLOWLY CLIMBING UP TREES OFF DEADWOOD ROAD, FROM FORESTHILL ROAD THIS AFTERNOON. THIS IS NORTHEAST OF MICHIGAN BLUFF AND FORESTHILL, WHERE PEOPLE HAD TO EVACUATE. CLOSER TO THOSE COMMUNITIES WE SAW CREWS DOING A LOT OF WORK TO TRY TO CREATE A FIRE BREAK. THEY REMOVED VEGETATION THAT COULD FUEL THE FIRE IN HOPES OF MAKING MORE PROGRESS ON CONTAINMENT AROUND IT. >> A LOT OF THE LINE ON THIS FIRE IS BEING CREATED INDIRECT AND THAT MEANS IT’S NOT BEING DONE DIRECTLY ON THE FIRE PERIMETER EDGE. IT HAS TO BE DONE SOME DISTANCE AWAY BECAUSE OF THE RIDGELINES BECAUSE THAT’S WHERE WE CAN GET OUR BULLDOZERS AND OUR OTHER HEAVY EQUIPMENT IN. TO ACTUALLY BULLDOZE AND CREATE THOSE BREAKS >> THIS FIRE HAS FORCED MORE THAN 11,000 PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR HOMES. THERE ARE NEARLY 2400 PEOPLE ASSIGNED TO HELP FIGHT THIS FIRE. LIVE IN MICHIGAN BLUFF, LYSEE MITRI, KCRA 3 NEWS. >> THANKS, LYSEE. >> WE CONTINUE OUR TEAM COVERAGE WITH CHIEF METEOROLOGIST MARK FINAN TRACKING THE GROWTH AND DIRECTION OF THE FIRE. >> AS A LIZ A MENTIONED WE HAVE BEEN SEEING GROWTH. I WILL SHOW YOU TWO FIRE PERIMETERS HERE, THE WHITE PERIMETER IS WHERE IT WAS FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND THE RED PERIMETER IS WHERE IT WAS MAPPED AT AROUND NOON OR 2:00 THIS AFTERNOON. I WILL TAKE YOU AROUND THE FIRE. OVER THE WEEKEND WE DID SEE PROGRESS DOWN THE CANYON. AND DOWN THE HILL FROM VOLCANOVILLE. THEY ARE TRYING TO ACTIVELY TAKE OUT SOME OF THE FUEL HERE SO IF THE WIND PICKS UP AGAIN IT DOES NOT GO UP THE HILL INTO FOREST HILL. ALONG THE SOUTH END OF THE FIRE THAT AREA ALONG VOLCANOVILLE ROAD, THERE IS NOT ANY DIFFERENCE IN THE LINES, SO NO GROWTH HERE OR DOWN TOWARDS THE GEORGETOWN AREA. THERE HAS BEEN A GROWTH OUT TO THE EAST AND THE BIGGEST GROWTH HAS BEEN THE NORTHEAST SIDE OF THE FIRE BUT STILL THEY ARE KEEPING IT TO THE SOUTH OF FOREST HILL ROAD WHICH IS HERE. A LOT OF LITTLE CANYONS IN HERE, VERY DIFFICULT TERRAIN FOR THEM TO PUT IN A DOZER LINE. THE WIND IS GOING TO CHANGE. DURING THE NIGHT WE GET THAT CLASSIC DOWNSLOPE WANED. VERY LIGHT DOWNSLOPE WIN. THE WIND WILL BE CHANGING TOMORROW. WE WILL SEE A STRONGER WIND THAN THE LAST FEW DAYS, NOT A STRONG, GUSTY WIND BUT ENOUGH THAT OVER THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS THAT THE HEAD OF THIS FIRE COULD CATCH A LITTLE MORE THAN WHAT WE HAVE SEEN OVER THE LAST COUPLE DAYS. THAT WILL BE THE CONCERN TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY IS THE POSSIBILITY OF STRONGER SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS. >> WE’LL GET BACK TO YOU IN JUST A SECOND, MARK. BUT FIRST, WE WANT TO SHOW YOU THE SMOKE THE FIRE IS PUTTING UP. STILL CAUSING AIR QUALITY CONCERNS IN SOME PLACES. PILOT DAN OPPENHEIM IN DAN, HOW DOES THIS COMPARE TO WHAT YOU SAW LAST WEEK? >> THE LAST TIME WE WERE OUT HERE WAS FRIDAY AND WE STILL HAVE DENSE SMOKE CLOSE TO THE FIRE. WE HAVE MUCH BETTER VISIBILITY, THE THICK COLUMN OF SMOKE THAT EVERYONE CAN SEE YELLOWING UP SEEMS TO HAVE DISSIPATED A LITTLE. — BILLOWING UP. WE STILL HAVE VISIBILITY ISSUES, POOR AIR WHICH IS TO BE EXPECTED. >> I KNOW THEY CANNOT FLIGHT ANY OF THEIR AIRCRAFT LATE LAST WEEK BECAUSE THE SMOKE WAS SO BAD. HAVE THEY RESUMED AERIAL ATTACK? >> IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY IT WAS A FAIRLY CLEAR DAY WHERE THERE WERE SEVERAL AIRCRAFT WORKING ON THE FIRE AND RIGHT NOW I BELIEVE THERE IS ONE AIRCRAFT HELICOPTER THAT WE SAW IN THE VICINITY OF THE FIRE. MUCH THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO REESTABLISH THAT’S AERIAL ATTACK THEY WERE DOING LAST WEEK. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH. LET’S GO OVER TO MARK FINAN AGAIN, FOR A LOOK AT WHERE THAT SMOKE IS GOING. >> WE HAVE HAYES EDIT IT EVEN EXTENDS TOWARD THE BAY AREA. IF YOU ARE IN SACRAMENTO IT IS NOT GREAT. IT IS CERTAINLY HAZY. INTO EL DORADO COUNTY FROM BETWEEN HIGHWAY 15 TO INTERSTATE 80, THAT IS UNHEALTHY AIR. OF AROUND 400, 500. IT IS THAT THICK, CHOKING SMOKE. NORTH OF HIGHWAY 20 AND IT GETS A LITTLE BETTER BUT NOT MUCH. TONIGHT WE WILL SEE MORE OF THE WIND PICKED UP AND THAT WILL HELP CLEAR A LOT OF THAT OUT OF THE VALLEY. DURING THE NIGHT TONIGHT THE SMOKE WILL DISSIPATE SOMEWHAT. TOMORROW WITH A STRONGER SOUTHWESTERLY WIND WE SHOULD SEE MUCH CLEARER SKIES OVER THE VALLEY AND PERHAPS MORE OF A WELL DEFINED PLUME OF SMOKE THAT WILL BE DIRECTED OFF TOWARD THE RENO AREA AS OPPOSED TO THAT WIDE AREA OF HADES WE HAVE HAD THE LAST COUPLE DAYS.
