Crews are making progress on the Tassajara Fire burning in Carmel Valley. At 1086 acres, the fire is 30% contained. Over the past twenty-four hours, the fire has not grown beyond its footprint, which Cal Fire’s Scott McLean says is a good sign.
“But on the flip side we can’t be complacent. The Wragg Fire in northern California earlier this year is a prime example. We had that fire contained. We had that within that footprint, and unfortunately, an ember did come across that line later and increased that acreage by 500 acres on that particular fire,” says McLean.
