Crews make progress on 2 Eldorado forest fires

Two fires continue to burn in El Dorado County.

The Table Fire as of 6:30pm Oct. 12 was 170 acres and 15 percent contained. It is burning three miles northeast of Ice House Reservoir.

“The fire is in a sheltered location so the predicted winds on Saturday are not expected to have a significant effect,” according to fire officials.

The fire started by lightning more than a month ago. The U.S. Forest Service was letting it burn out naturally, but winds turned it into a wildland fire. No structures are threatened.

The Ice Fire is two miles west of Ice House and White Meadows roads. It is at 30 acres and 95 percent containment. Full containment is expected by Friday night.
