Situation Summary

The Jerusalem Fire, north of Middletown, in Lake County is 100% as of 8/24/15 at 6:00 PM. An engine crew will be patrolling the fire area and monitoring conditions for the next few days. All other fire personnel have been released or reassigned to other incidents. Fire season will continue in all areas of California until a significant amount of rain (consistent wet weather pattern) reaches the drought stricken State.

Plan, Prepare and Practice!

“RESIDENTS ARE URGED TO STAY VIGILANT AND ADHERE TO ANY CHANGES IN EVACUATIONS AND ROAD CLOSURES”. Fire activity and direction can change at any time, be prepared and stay informed.
