Progress made on Peters fire

From C Heden in Cottonwood:

Thanks to the great support from our firefighters, there’s encouraging news about the Peter Fire early this a.m.; after growing to 300 acres, CalFIre reports the forward progress has been halted with 25% containment.
From my my deck I cannot see any smoke, though my vantage point does not extend to ground level, so smoke must be ground-hugging due to overnight inversion.
Light winds and similar temps to yesterday are expected later on…and hopes are they can begin mop-up operations without another breakout.
No injuries have been reported, although several buildings and cars were lost. Evacs are still in place, though…but I suspect they will be changing to a warning instead of being mandatory.
