Silver Creek Area Closure Lifted

Silver Creek Fire Wildfire
Closures – 10/24/2018

As of Wednesday, Oct. 24 the Silver Creek Fire area closure has been lifted. This includes all areas previously closed by the closure order. Recent moisture, cold weather, shortened burn periods, and a lack of fire activity in the Silver Creek burn area has enabled the U.S. Forest Service to lift the area closure for the fire. The public may access and use the fire area, however, the fire may still be smoldering. Caution is urged in burned areas, as trees may have been weakened by the fire and could easily fall.
