2:45 pm photo by Rhea Withrow who says: Yes, looks like it’s in the green island between the seefelds and hermitage. I had asked her to confirm my red circle around the area of the fire.

1:45 pm — Per scanner traffic as reported by Chris Buonocore, and calling for more resources. I can’t see anything specific, but it is pretty hazy here. Still pretty windy. Wild Cad-LPF had this:

I am guessing it is a reignite from the Dolan. There were lots of underground fires still happening.
