From CRESA: Officials estimate the Nakia Creek Fire today grew from 156 acres to about 2000 acres. The easterly winds were so strong today that air assets were grounded at times for safety. New containment is listed at 5 percent.
Please note this is a very rough estimate as there is so much smoke in the air, it is difficult to get a good visual on the fire. CRESA believes we will have better numbers by morning.
CRESA sent out multiple notification alerts today including a Wireless Emergency Alert. Please be sure you are looking at the most current map and updates for the most accurate notification areas.
