CA: Indians fire, more information

Here is the latest map of the Indians fire on the Los Padres National Forest in southern California which shows heat (in red) detected by satellites last night. Quite a bit of the heat is outside the last perimeter (in yellow) that was uploaded by the incident management team about 24 hours ago.

Some of the heat could be from burnout operations, but as we reported previously, additional structures were lost yesterday as a result of strong north winds which caused extreme fire behavior on the southeast side. The size is now reported to be 41,689 acres. For "Projected Movement", the team says:
Primary spread of the fire will continue to the south and southeast.
