Inciweb wrote on June 11, the latest update: “Being in the old fire scar makes direct firefighting tactics difficult due to the amount of standing dead trees, dead and down logs, and thick decadent brush. Crews will be shuttled in by helicopter today to assess conditions and to identify tactics that can be safely employed. 1 helicopter, 2 crews, and 1 engine are committed to the fire with more resources on order. The Inyo National Forest’s Type 3 Organization has been activated.”
