A couple of trees have torched on the left flank. They are bringing in a helicopter to do water drops.

We haven't received any official confirmation of that yet. As soon as we hear anything, we'll share it; quite likely the crews came in for the night, are monitoring overnight and will mop up tomorrow. We do know that a nearby resident who was preparing to evacuate was able to stay so that's a very good sign!
