    AKA Cadillac area?
    Winds are light right now, but lots of fuel. Curious as to whether they're doing backfires or if the fire has naturally advanced to that ridge.

    No... I'm sure mike's report is the most accurate. Farther up the canyon... Trabuco/Jim area

    Flames just got a lot more visible...

    There’s a pic from the peak on OCfirewatch Twitter. It’s on the ridge between holy jim drainage and trabuco canyon proper.

    From Joanna Hubble:

    The fire is currently over 100 acres and is burning away from Orange County towards Riverside County with very little wind. There are 10 fixed wing aircraft on the fire now. The US Forest Service is the lead on this fire and you can follow them on twitter for updates if you like.

    @ClevelandNF


    Thanks for all the updates and info, everyone.

    This would be kinda scary. On bikes we could maybe cover ground faster.

    #HolyFire (Orange Co) - Unknown number of hikers reportedly have their egress cut off by fire but were walking away from it further up the track. Copters searching the area for them, caller had very bad phone reception.
