The footprint of the Baird Springs Fire west of Quincy is unchanged and is still burning 2,400 acres in it's third day after igniting.

A statewide team is now handling the fire, and local crews have left the scene, according to the incident commander.

Level 2 Evacuations remain in place for the Crescent Bar and Trinidad areas and are continuously being reassessed.

State Route 28 and the railroad tracks remain open, although trains are running at a reduced speed.

Fire spokesperson Kay McKellar says one single engine plane is dropping water on the fire.

She also says a Department of Natural Resources airplane is using infrared technology to provide more accurate mapping of the fire.

"This is a great thing that they're doing in trying to get the actual size of the fire," said McKellar.
