These areas have been deemed safe from active fire though residents should stay alert to changing conditions.Remember the fire is still active within the burned area and you may see spots of smoke. Fire personnel will still be actively working the interior and edges of the fire. Expect to see hotspots for some time. Do not call 911 to report unless there is an immediate threat to life or property.

Be vigilant to weather and wind conditions and take any future orders seriously, should they change.

Just because the flames are out doesn’t mean the danger is over. Damaged trees/terrain and flash flooding are just some of the dangers that exist after a wildfire. DO NOT put yourself or your loved ones in danger by exploring.
