Status Update

Situation Summary

Current Situation: Brush and oak woodland vegetation. Access has been an issue. Steep, rocky terrain makes fire suppression work extremely difficult especially during the nighttime hours.

Additional Information: Please exercise great caution while driving through the towns of Angels Camp and Vallecito, and in the areas of Parrott’s Ferry Road and Camp Nine Road. Please watch for fire vehicles and personnel. Smoke may reduce visibility, especially at night. Until smoke dissipates air quality may continue to be an issue for sensitive groups. Keep windows closed and limit strenuous outdoor activities until air quality improves.
