Sunnyside Complex Fire is approximately 1600 acres and has burned multiple structures within the complex.

Utility crews are currently working at multiple locations trying to get power restored due to a vast number of downed power lines. At this time crews do not have a time estimate for the power to be restored.
The Highway 12 MM 49 Fire is approximately 100 acres (as of Tuesday morning) and is threatening structures.
