A Forest Order is in effect for areas affected by the Holcomb Fire. For more information, please view the Holcomb Fire Forest Closure Order, and Holcomb Fire Forest Closure Map.

Fireworks are always prohibited on National Forests!

Drones: Drones pose a serious risk to firefighting and can cause air operations to cease. When drones interfere with firefighting efforts, a wildfire has the potential to grow larger and cause more damage. A FAA Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) is in effect and any private aircraft or drone that violates the TFR could face serious criminal charges. Even without a TFR, anyone who hampers firefighting efforts could face charges as well. For more information on drones the public can visit the FAA’s website at “If you fly, we can’t!”.
