Mandatory Evacuation Order Lifted For Sulphur Fire

Public Information Release
October 13th, 2017
Lieutenant Corey Paulich

The Sulphur Fire is estimated to be at approximately 55% containment and fire personnel continue to make progress in suppressing the fire. Power is in the process of being restored, the roads are being cleared of debris, and emergency personnel. The mandatory evacuation order for the Sulphur Fire has been lifted allowing for the repopulation of the affected areas. Due to ongoing power restoration efforts by PG&E, access to all areas west of Mendocino Avenue will be via North Road. Returning residents should stay vigilant, and be prepared to evacuate again on short notice. The area will remain under an evacuation advisory.

There will be a 7pm to 7am curfew in effect in areas that are still without power. Anyone caught roaming within that area will be subject to possible arrest. Anyone seeing suspicious activity should report it to authorities immediately. Drones are prohibited as they may interfere with ongoing aerial fire suppression operations.

Fire personnel have requested that all residents be alert to fire crews and other emergency staff that will be assessing damage throughout the region. Please use caution around any fire impacted areas and report any hazards or hazardous conditions. PG&E is working to return power to those areas that are no longer under mandatory evacuation. Spoiled food should be disposed of appropriately. Additional details will be forthcoming via Nixle.
