They have been spiked out since Thursday and have been working on constructing handline on Division K. The plan was to do a firing operation after the handline was in. Line has been cut around the west end of the fire.
Today they have been moved to Division K where they will again be spiked out, and assisting in putting handline in to do a firing operation. The objective is to do the firing operation to tie it in to the Zaca fire (last year). They are working below the Sierra Madre ridge with the Arrowhead Hotshots. Fire behavior active in front of them and is creating a challenge to put in handline.
