JACKSON, California (AP) – Good weather conditions forced early Wednesday firefighters in two states to fight wildfires in the Golden State of California.
The size of the electric fireplace remained unchanged at 6.1 square miles (15.8 square kilometers) and doubled to 10 percent, according to the California Department of Forest and Fire Protection.
“Moisture recovery in the early hours of the morning corrected fire activity,” Cal Fire said.
The blaze broke out Monday afternoon in the basement of Sierra Nevada, forcing it to evacuate the provinces of neighboring Calaverras in Amador.
According to Cal Fire, the number of damaged buildings is 1,217, but there are no reports of damage or damage. One firefighter was injured.
With relative humidity ranging from 75% to 90% and the north wind generally light, infrared satellite images overnight show a “reduced heat signature” from the fire, according to the National Weather Service. Western winds are expected in the afternoon.
The blaze broke out on the banks of the river, where they were celebrating the fourth of July. The cause is under investigation, but Amadour County Sheriff Gary Redman said the location could be used as a fireworks display or barbecue.
