No road closures or evacuations at this time. The fire was reported off Junes Road in south Palermo, and spread very rapidly. A north wind gusting to 30 miles per hour moved the fire across Junes Road and south until it hit Honcut Creek. Quick response by multiple engines, other resources, and crews both on the ground and in the air stopped the forward spread of the fire within three hours.
There were structures threatened initially when the fire started, but crews quickly mitigated that threat.
