According to USFS PIO Kate Kramer, we can thank the Southridge, Westridge and Shady fuel breaks for keeping the Cranston Fire from burning Idyllwild. 

The fire is traveling east. A Type 1 Incident Command Team is being set up near Lake Hemet by 6:00 p.m. Thursday.

Firefighters are expecting temperatures exceeding 100 degrees today.

From lower Saunders Meadow Road to Keenwild Station, both sides of Highway 243 are burned out.
