TA Alert-Westridge Fire #2-120 acres



At 8:20 PM, AZ Forestry & Fire Management posted the following tweet:


"Per Air Attack, the #WestridgeFire in the #Tortolitas is 120 acres. Two structures to N. of fire threatened. Fire is moving to S/SE. Add’l ground resources enroute with more aircraft ordered for Tues am. Fire is burning in rugged terrain & thru heavy fuels. #AZForestry#AZFire"


I believe the structures mentioned are remote buildings located in Cochie Canyon (see map in previous blog). Sounds like Air Attack hit the fire already and will return in the am. Hopefully they will get this contained tomorrow.
