July 3rd - evening

The fire continues to creep towards Tassajara.

This map shows where the fire has been burning in the past 24 hours. It shows that the fire is racing north and south at speed but only spreading slowly to the east. To the north the fires now threaten Big Sur where 1500 residents have been evacuated.

The weather, which had been helping firefighters, has now become less favourable. The fire management team are now saying that the fire will not be contained until the end of July.
