Evacuation Order Lifted for the Spring Valley Community

Mandatory evacuation orders related to the Pawnee Fire have been lifted for the Spring Valley Community. All areas of Spring Valley, New Long Valley, and Old Long Valley will be open at 4PM. Mandatory evacuation orders are still in place for the Double Eagle Ranch area. Road Closures will remain at Walker Ridge Road and Hwy. 20 as well as Mule Skinner Road and Hwy. 20.

Safety Message: When operating your vehicles in the damaged area please stay focused and avoid distractions. Please drive slowly as emergency personnel continue to operate in the area. Anytime a structure, residential or commercial, burns there are certain hazards associated with making access to the property. Many of these hazards have been mitigated by suppression and public utility personnel. However, there are many hazards which may still be present and cause illness or injury to you. Residents are urged to bring food and water with them as water lines to properties may have been damaged during fire suppression.

If you see electrical wires on the ground, stay clear and contact PG&E immediately. Trees and poles with deep charring, particularly if still smoking, should be considered hazardous.

As you re-enter your property and evaluate damage, be aware that hazardous conditions may exist, particularly if a residence or out-building has burned. Hazards may include asbestos, heavy metals, byproducts of plastic combustion and various other chemicals. Once a wildfire has burned through an area, many dangers may remain. If you observe any hazardous conditions stay away and report condition to a local fire or law enforcement official in the area or call 911.
