Modoc NF Closure Remains in Effect for Parker 2 Fire Area

Parker 2 Fire Wildfire
Announcements – 8/13/2017

A Forest Closure is still in effect for areas impacted by the Parker 2 Fire. While containment on the fire continues to increase, there are still significant hazards inside the fire perimeter, including weakened trees, still burning stump holes which can be hard to detect and even a possibility that remaining islands of unburned vegetation will continue to ignite and burn. There are still over 600 firefighters working in the fire area. For their safety and for your own, please make sure that you are respecting the Forest Closure.
