Upon arrival, the Inspector identified a large haystack fire with approximately 100 continuous hay bales. Smoke was impacting the residential and industrial zoned northeast area of Imperial, CA.

The Imperial County APC Inspector revisited the source at 2:00 p.m., and smoke impacts were minimal to nearby sensitive receptors.
