The Ogilvy Fire is now 175 acres and 25% contained. Ten crews are on the line, with limited access for engines. Favorable weather conditions and air support were key in limiting spread, reports the Los Padres National Forest.

It's too soon to say that it's out. Inciweb still doesn't have it listed. Because there are no new IR detects the fire does not seem to be spreading. Everything can change if we get bad winds. There's a twitter feed on the fire: #ogilvyfire and that doesn't have a lot of new information. I'd take that as good news. Until the containment gets to 100%, anything can happen in our dry chaparral .

Per the National Fire Situational Awareness map, all the IR detects that were orange earlier today are yellow with no new IR detects. It looks like they are doing great job keeping this thing from getting out of hand.

Great memories of packing in on horseback and staying on the ranch in a little adobe shack. Hope all is well over there.

The three IR detects from the National Fire Situational Awareness map which were red are now orange with no new IR detections. This means little expansion of the perimeter overnight. We'll see how it behaves when things heat up during the day today. So far so good.

This will eventually become an incident on Inciweb: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov but it is not yet in their system. When it becomes listed there, I'll send the link.

Just heard that some County fire units have been “released” from the incident....that’s a good sign I believe.

Hopefully this will get surrounded relatively quickly due to the previous burns around it. It is already showing up on the National Fire Situational Awareness map which you can paste into your browser. https://maps.nwcg.gov/sa/#/%3F/34.5091/-119.5799/11

Anyone signed up for FEMA alerts, and does it include wildfires in its weather alerts? https://www.fema.gov/mobile-app

I called 911 to report smoke in backcountry at 3:20 - was told SBFS were already responding to a fire at Ogilvy Ranch. I tried to submit this news to Edhat at 3:30 but it wasn’t posted. Edhat is usually on the news within minutes. Thanks Roger!
