The China Cap fire is listed at zero-percent containment Thursday night and is very active according to leaders with the U.S. Forest Service.
The lightning-caused fire is burning in a steep and heavily timbered area making it difficult for anyone to safely fight the blaze from the ground.
"Fir tends to burn really fast and put up a lot of columns of smoke," said Kramer. "Right now we've only got eight smoke jumpers, and we've got heavy helicopters and retardant air-crafts that are dropping retardant and water."
Lack of safety zones are a concern for those eight smoke jumpers on the ground. Fire managers are working on a containment strategy at this time.
