EL DORADO FIRE UPDATE THU 9/16 PM
The El Dorado Fire has charred 18,506 acres and is 63% contained.

SITUATION
The great work by firefighting resources assigned to the El Dorado Fire continued today. The fire slowly backed down at low intensity into a retardant line placed along Hwy 38 in the vicinity of Angelus Oaks. Ground crews were able to directly attack the fire utilizing hose lines to protect the community. The fire did burn to a dozer line at Spruce Ave in Angelus Oaks and was contained by the fire line that was created and reinforced throughout the week. The fire did not reach any structures. Structure protection continues from Pinezanita to Jenks Lake by increasing defensible space, hose line placement and fire line construction along Hwy 38 due to the potential for increased fire activity with the alignment of topography and predicted weather over the fire area over the next few days. In the Forest Falls Area, the fire activity continues to slowly back down the slope and burn eastward along Mill Creek. The fire line has been widened along Forest Falls as firefighters continue to work in and around this community.

SPOT FIRE
A 1/4 acre spot fire was discovered approx 1 mile north of Highway 38 between 1N86 and Seven Oaks Road at around 6pm. Ground resources and helicopters already in the area were quick to respond and that spot fire is currently being overhauled. [see map included in this post]

WEATHER:
A high-pressure weather system remains over the fire resulting in winds from the southwest. The weather remains dry and hot and the fire will align with topography and is expected to burn actively upslope towards the San Bernardino Peak (northeast) towards the Lake Fire scar.

EVACUATIONS:
Evacuation Orders Remain In Effect for Mountain Home Village, Forest Falls, Angelus Oaks and Seven Oaks. All residents who have not yet evacuated in the Angelus Oaks area please leave!!!
There is NO evacuation directive for Big Bear residents AT THIS TIME. Please monitor official sources for any changes.
All residents waiting to return home: we ask for your continued patience. Our work in and around your community is not complete yet. Fire crews are ensuring proper mop up and extinguishment around homes. We are re-evaluating this daily with the utility companies, Caltrans, CHP and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. We ask that you continue to support the firefighters by staying out of the way until we can open your neighborhood safely for you.

ROAD CLOSURES:
Highway 38 is closed between Bryant St. to the south and Onyx Summit to the north

FULL STATS: Acres burned: 18,506 Containment: 63% Personnel: 1351 Injuries: 12; Evacuated: 3,467; Structures threatened: 26,031; Homes damaged: 2; Homes destroyed: 4; Outbuildings damaged: 4; Outbuildings destroyed: 6

FROM DR. LUCY JONES ON TWITTER:
The swarm happening now south of the Salton Sea, near Westmoreland is over 30 km south of the end of the San Andreas. It is in the Brawley seismic zone, a common source of swarms. So far largest is M4.4. Too far from the San Andreas to change the probability of a quake on it.

Good to hear DsrtPsn! Quite the swarm going on down there. I wonder what the Earthquake folks think about it?
