The United States Forest Service briefed allied public safety agencies this morning on the state of the Cascade Fire.  USFS Fire Command reports  that the very favorable weather conditions overnight are expected continue into this operation period and beyond. The Hot Shot Crews who fought the fire overnight have made significant progress, and  fire activity outside of the fire’s current line in the Desolation Wilderness is not expected.  As this event winds down no structures are threatened and mutual aid is not needed at present, nor is it an anticipated need.   Should the situation change The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office remains prepared to assist as required.
