The SQF Complex Fires have burned more than 122,000 acres in the Southern Sierra and have consumed at least 150 buildings so far. Containment on the blaze remains at just 12%. On Thursday, an Action News crew saw some of the fire damage along Balch Park Road. It's unclear when the flames swept through there. But there were lingering smoke and flames. That part of the fire, the west zone, is under the command of a CAL FIRE team. The east zone is being managed by the Northern Rockies Incident Management Team, which includes areas that have seen heavy structure loss. On Thursday, Tulare County's Fire Chief reported 50 destroyed structures in Alpine Village, 46 in Cedar Slope, and 42 in Sequoia Crest. But officials also noted they have successfully protected homes and cabins in Pierpoint Springs, Camp Nelson, and Ponderosa.
