A bulldozer, two air tankers, 15 engines and four fire crews were working the fire yesterday. The total number of personnel assigned was 140 at one point.

Participating agencies included California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation; Central Fire, Mokelumne Hill Fire, San Andreas Fire, West Point Fire.
