About 2,000 firefighters from throughout the area are aggressively fighting the Loma Fire which continues to spread in the Loma Chiquita Road and Loma Prieta Road area of the Santa Cruz mountains. Overnight, the fire remained active in the brush and timber litter, which allowed the fire to make short runs and smolder throughout the night. The fire is currently burning in the Mt. Loma Prieta, Mt. Chual and Uvas Creek drainages. As of 7:00 a.m., the fire had spread to over 3,849 acres with 22% containment.
A community meeting will be held tonight, 9/29 at 7:00PM at Loma Prieta Elementary School, located at 23800 Summit Road, Los Gatos.
