More news about the Partington fire from sources on the ground there:
There was a flare-up from the “original” fire up near the Tin house, which drew air support earlier in the day. One of the helicopters working the flare-up clipped a power line which started a second, larger fire in lower Partington canyon. Latest news is that the fire is moving slowly and the chances for full containment soon are good. There is air and ground support working the area vigilantly now.
4pm update: The fire is still burning and the terrain is incredilbly steep, but crews are feeling confident about the situation. More when we know it… (Note: there are rumors there was a helicopter crash – this is NOT the case.)
