A public information meeting on the Eiler fire will be held tonight at 7 p.m. at Fall River High School in McArthur.

Fire officials say the Eiler Fire continued to grow Sunday, crossing Highway 89, southeast of Burney.

The fire is still 0 percent contained, and officials say they are still trying to catchup with the fire, having to compete for resources is making the battle that much tougher.

The majority of the Eiler Fire activity today was southeast of Burney, with little activity reported to the north, or Burney side of the fire.

Aerial crews are currently working to gather an updated number on acreage burned and expect to release that information around 6 p.m. Sunday.

The Red Cross has an evacuation center set up at Fall River High School, 44215 Walnut St. in McArthur and another at Foothill High School.
