Current Situation: The Holcomb Fire began around 3:05 PM on June 19th. The fire is currently 1,503 acres, with 100 percent containment.
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: 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 www.KnowBeforeYouFly.org. “If you fly, we can’t!”.
