Indian Gulch Fire Behavior Update

The Indian Gulch Fire has been creeping and smoldering throughout the day. It has not grown significantly in size. However, afternoon winds are expected to pick up -- which may increase fire activity, and may force air support to stay grounded.

Evacuations are still in place, and Golden Gate Canyon Road remains closed for safety during fire operations.

Fire and law enforcement officials will brief the media at 3 p.m.
