The Sheriff has shut down Blackrock Road in that area to traffic. Fire number two is burning on Chinese Peak, but has not yet crossed the mountain. No structures have been burned. All residents have been notified. Each fire has consumed around 100 acres. There are no reports of injuries nor when each blaze might be under control. It’s believed both fires were caused by lightening strikes.
