Anaheim sent mutual aid in the form of five pieces of equipment along with a battalion chief to fight the blaze, which exceeds 700 acres.

OCFA sent a strike team of five engines and a strike team leader to assist Cal Fire and Riverside County firefighters. Additionally, the agency dispatched a “hand crew” of wild land firefighters to assist.
