Residents ONLY may return to their homes.
Please remember the fire is still active within the burned area and you may see spots of smoke.
Fire personnel will still be actively working the interior and edges of the fire. Expect to see hotspots for some time.
Do not call 911 to report unless there is an immediate threat to life or property.
Be vigilant to weather and wind conditions and take any future orders seriously, should they change.
While returning home and while fire personnel remain in the area use caution, reduce your speed, drive with your headlights on and yield to emergency personnel.
