The emergency closure for the Silver Creek Fire was revised yesterday for public and firefighter safety. The area of the closure did not change. However, due to fire operations, the following roads are now included and closed to public traffic. Forest Service Road 100 (Buffalo Park Road) is closed from the Forest Boundary in the south to the intersection of the Road and Highway 40 to the north. Forest Service Road 250 is closed to travel north of the junction with Forest Service Road 243. Forest Service Road 312, the Muddy Creek Trailhead across Highway 40, is also closed.
