The fire crossed into Placer County yesterday and is approaching the Tahoe National Forest boundary. The fire spread moderately today with most of the activity in the north end between French Meadows and Hell Hole Reservoir. Evacuations were lifted on the southern end of the fire in the Pollock Pines area. To improve operational efficiencies and to reduce travel time for the fire crews to reach their assignments, the management of the fire will be splitting into two zones. CalFire IMT 5 (Kevin Smith) will take over management of the southern zone of the fire Saturday morning. The current team CIIMT 5 (Jim Giachino) will be coordinating firefighting operations on the north portion of the fire from a new camp location in the Foresthill area. A Damage Assessment Team is working in the White Meadows area to assess the extent of loss or damage to structures. The King Fire is being managed in Unified Command with CAL FIRE, Eldorado National Forest, and the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office.
