Angels Camp, CA — The Mark Fire burning south of Angels Camp has grown to 140 acres and it is 40% contained.
CAL Fire Unit Forester Adam Freese says it has been burning in oak woodland and grass. He adds, “Crews made really good progress last night, and the expected containment is six o’clock this evening.”
Assigned to the fire today are five engines, two crews and overhead. No aircraft is assigned at this time. There are some homes in the general area of the Mark Fire, but none are considered in immediate danger.
