June 23, 2016 (Potrero) – Tactical firing Operations are being conducted above the north east corner of the Border 3 Fire., Cal Fire advises.
These firing operations are one of the many tools used to stop and or slow down the spread of large fires. The firing operation, along with direct perimeter control efforts, will continue throughout the day and night until the objective has been met.
