The evacuation order will be lifted at 8:00 a.m. Monday, August 19th for all residents of Rockport Estates and Rockport Ranches. The gates will be locked allowing only residents to access their properties.

There has been no increase in the size of the Rockport Fire. The size remains at 1,920 acres and is now 70% contained. The evacuation order for Rockport Estates and Rockport Ranches remains in place until 8:00 a.m. tomorrow due to a number of safety concerns. Firefighters building and securing containment lines are still seeing hot spots in pockets of unburned fuels within the fire perimeter. Vehicles and personnel are still actively fighting the fire and need unobstructed access.

The only residents permitted access today are families who have lost homes or other structures and have been contacted by the Ranch Manager. It is strongly encouraged that all residents register cell phone numbers with the Code Red Emergency Notification System. This service allows Emergency Management to notify specific areas of emergencies. Go to www.summitcounty.org and look for the Code Red button at the bottom of page to register.
