The fire, which started on Tuesday afternoon after a bird flew into a power line, scorched 1,667 acres in the Hornitos and Old Toll Road areas. Two CAL FIRE engines and hand crews will be assigned to the fire tomorrow to continue line construction, mop up and patrol. One firefighter was treated and released for a heat-related injury.
