        Update:  Holding to 20 acres with tanker drops.  IC worried about one area tankers can drop.  If it gets into that drainage, it could run.


        Most initial and first-update response resources have arrived.


        Location on Hwy 32 approximately 8 miles north of Forest Ranch.


        Near 39 degrees 58.729 minutes N by 121 degrees 38.668 minutes W.  This will give you the general location but unsure of exact fire start.


        Tacnet is still Tac 9

        Command Net is now Butte Support (154.415 MHz)
