Soberanes Fire is getting more active in the Big Sur River drainage

The Soberanes Fire is getting more active in the Big Sur River drainage and smoke is now visible from the Highway 1 and the Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.

The fire is burning pockets of unburned fuel in the river drainage and is not threatening containment lines at this point. Four helicopters are enroute to drop water on the active fire to guide it down the river drainage.

The increased activity is a result of increased winds and low relative humidity. We will keep you posted.
