In the Kings Canyon, the firefighters are working diligently to slow the growth of the Rough Fire towards Hume Lake. Air resources, including helicopters dropping water, and fixed-wing aircraft using fire retardant, in conjunction with firefighters on the ground working to create firelines. This morning, as smoke conditions allow, fixed wing aircraft will continue with retardant drops.
Last night, the Incident Command Post that was in Hume Lake was moved to the Hume Ranger Station in Dunlap. The move is to provide continuity-of-operations for the planning efforts. The firefighters and structure protection resources that were assigned to Hume Lake will continue to remain there to protect that infrastructure.
