3:11 pm — fire is 1/2 mile north of White Oak Campground per scanner traffic. and from WatchDuty: ”The fire is located approx a 1/2 mile north of the campground. The fire is now 3 acres & appears to be holding w/ good progress being made by aircraft per radio traffic. 2 additional handcrews requested.”
I highly recommend getting the WatchDuty app available for both O/S and Android. I am on the WD team.
