EVACUATIONS:


Evacuations have expanded from the Bootleg, Chris Flat and Sonora Bridge Campgrounds to now include the Leavitt Meadows Pack Station and Campground, the Marine Warfare Training Center and the Devil’s Gate area. Mono County Sheriff’s Office is evacuating residents and campers from the Sonora Pass area spanning approximately four miles south to include the community of Devil’s Gate. Ranchers are asked to be prepared to move livestock out of the area south of US 395 and CA SR 108 in the event evacuations are necessary.

The Pacific Crest Trail is closed between CA SR 108 at Sonora Pass and Highway 4 at Ebbetts Pass as a result of the Donnell Fire. The Boot Fire does not currently impact this trail, but the closure does impact recreationists on the Bridgeport Ranger District.
