Hot Sunday afternoon

It's hot and the wind seems fresher today. Not good news for the firefighters and there's hotter weather to come with temperatures over 100 forecast for next week with winds starting off from the north and northwest before an offshore wind on Wednesday.

The east side of the Basin fire has been stalled for a few days with hardly any movement overnight and no hot spots from the past 24hrs that are nearer to Tassajara. Helicopters have been used to check the spread of the fire, dropping water and also performing some limited back-burning.

However the most recent Inciweb update suggests that the fire is more active today with '
Active fire runs with occasional group torching.' in the East Zone of the fire. It also reports that 'Fire is moving down the Tassajara drainage near the fork of Church Creek'.
