When Jack Froggatt stopped by for a very quick visit this morning, the news wasn't so good for Jamesburg. The fire has jumped the dozer lines and spot fires are burning in the White Oak area. They are hoping to snuff out these fires before they get a hold so there's a lot of air activity, a lot of engines and crews moving up the road.
The land this side of the ridge hasn't burned in a long while so there's plenty of fuel and the firefighters have to wait for the air support to drench the area before it's safe for them to enter the forest and fight the fire on the ground.
A small crew from Berkeley are now working on preparing this site.
Neighbours report that cars are being stopped at the junction of Tassajara Road and Carmel Valley Road. One of the fire crew believes that this area went to a Mandatory Evacuation in the last 30 minutes.
With the fire so active it will be a while before the road over the hill is cleared.
