At 2 A.M. this morning there was an IR (inferred camera) flight that flew over the complex. This flight enabled us to get more accurate acreage on the fires. Last night before the flight the total acreage reported for the fires was 3,365 after the flight heat detection camera’s were able to more accurately detect the updated acreage of the fires and reported a total acreage of 6,382.
