The El Dorado Fire burning north of Yucaipa is 44% contained. It has burned 14,478 acres since it was started by people using fireworks at a gender reveal party at a park in Yucaipa on Saturday September 5th 2020.
1,613 firefighters are still battling the fire.
The Bobcat Fire burning in the San Gabriel Valley Foothills near Monrovia and Pasadena, has grown to 36,366 acres with 6% containment.
On Sunday September 13th 2020, crews conducted strategic firing operations in the south as the fire remained very active reaching Chantry Flat in Santa Anita Canyon.
There has been significant western growth towards Mt. Wilson and Mt. Harvard where hand crews and dozers are working to protect the area.
Fire activity is expected to grow north where crews continue to conduct firing operations. Numerous spot fires near Buckhorn Flat and Highway 2 were successfully contained. On the west, the fire is staying within containment lines near Highway 39. The Station, Ranch2 and Fish fire scars are helping moderate fire activity due to low fuel loads.
The priority will remain to protect foothill communities using additional resources that have arrived.
The Bobcat Fire is under investigation. It started on Sunday September 6th 2020.
Smoke from both fires continues to spread across Riverside County and a Smoke Advisory remains in effect through Monday September 14th 2020.
