At around 1300, the CHP began closing down roadways near the fire incident.  Approximately, 45 minutes later, the Sheriff’s Office began conducting evacuations of nearby mobile home park located just north of Avenue 66 at Tyler Street and east Harrison Street. The streets were being closed by the CHP. The fire had grown to 30 acres at this time.

At 1530 hours, the fire had exploded to 75 acres, prompting an evacuation center to be opened.  A local transit company sent a bus with A/C to help REHAB firefighters. At this time, two firefighters were being evaluated for non-threatening injuries.

A few hours later, around 1509 hours, the Firefighters report the fire contained at 30%.
