Multiple smoke calls resulting in crews finding a 1/2 acre fire off of Silver Bear Road and Pleasant Park Road. There is no road access, crews will go through hiking/biking trail on Silver Bear Road.

Currently 1/2 acre, variable winds, 3 - 5 mph.

Although it was reported by two sources that containment had been achieved last night, that has not yet been confirmed by Elk Creek.

Units have been on the scene all night and will be continuing to work today.

The size of the fire as of last night was 0.6 acres.

More updates will be posted as soon as they come in.

Cause of the fire was a lightning strike (from the night before).
