Current Situation: Kern County Fire crews received the call for a grass fire late this evening.  Due to the drought and the time of year, a full wildland response was sent. Crews arrived to find a slow moving fire that is in thick heavy brush. There are many fire crews on scene along with engines, patrols, and dozers. There is a unified command with Sequoia National Forest.  Due to the nature of the brush and accessibility issues, it will be some time before the fire will be contained
