When firefighters arrived on scene the fire was immediately determined to be putting area structures at risk. By 6:30 p.m. the fire had spread to 900 acres and destroyed one structure. The fire remains at 0% containment. Two firefighters have been treated for heat exhaustion.

The fire began approximately 3 miles north of Rincon and Redbox Road off Highway 39.
