Golden Gate Canyon Fire, Fairmount Fire and Golden Fire are battling the blaze. Handcrews are working in the mostly rocky terrain. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jacki Kelley said says firefighters have to hike to the area to fight the flames. Officials requested a single-engine air tanker to help fight the flames, but it’s unavailable due to mechanical issues.

The Mountain Ridge subdivision is on standby for evacuations. A reverse 911 was called to residences in the area to alert them of the fire. Most of those homes are in the Canyon Point Circle off Highway 93.
