California: Gallery, Basin, Indians fires

The Gallery fire, part of the Basin complex south of Big Sur, was very active yesterday. The Gallery fire is approximately 5,920 acres and is 10% contained. The Basin fire, which is north of the Gallery fire, is also part of the complex which totals 8,500 acres. However, in looking at the map below, the Basin and Gallery fires have burned very close to each other, perhaps merging in some areas.

Five structures or out buildings may have been damaged in the last 24 hours, according to the Southern California coordination center.

The Indians fire has completed fireline around the south 2/3 of the perimeter. There is still a great deal of open line on the north side. They have completed a lot of indirect dozer line on the north side side of the fire, south of Arroyo Seco Road.

Here is a map, showing heat detected by satellites last night. The red is recently burned areas, while the yellow is the fire perimeter uploaded by the Incident Management Team. Click on the map to see a larger version.
