The Willow fire is now 73% contained. It has burned nearly 3,000 acres
The fire is burning south of Big Sur and is near the Tassajara Zen Center and Hot Springs.
A crew of Hot Shot fire fighters were flown in last Wednesday. Those Hot Shots are to be dropped into remote areas by aircraft to create lines to encircle the Willow fire.
Last week, officials closed a large portion of the Los Padres national forest in Monterey county because of the Willow fire.
