A new fire area closure was issued this morning, Friday August 30. The closed area is defined as all areas of the Nethker fire that have burned.
Burgdorf/French Creek Road, Warren Wagon Road, Crystal Mountain Road, Burgdorf Creek Road and Ruby Meadows Road (to the trailhead) are open for public travel. The 251 Road/OHV trail #174 remain closed as they area fully within the burned area.
Ruby Meadows road is open, but the first part of the road is surrounded by burned trees and vegetation - stay out of the burned area and drive past the burned area before getting out of your vehicle.
Jeanette Campground and Burgdorf Campground are open for public use; however, the fire area is closed - do not enter the burned area and no camping is allowed within the burned area. The burn area remains closed due to the potential for falling snags as this creates danger - no fuel wood cutting within the burned area.
Drive cautiously through the burned area while on the main roads as firefighters continue to work in the area, and the potential for falling snags is a hazard.
