Worthington Rd Fire Jumps to 100 Acres

A late afternoon increase in wind speed caused an increase in fire behavior along the front of the Worthington Rd. Fire between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. The fire grew an additional 30 acres in that time to create a total burned area of 100 acres.

Fire crews continue to press forward with bulldozers and crews building fireline to completely encircle the blaze. Other firefighters are extinguishing pockets of fire along the edge of the fireline.

The fire has not been declared contained, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
