The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office is lifting all evacuation orders in the following areas.  If you live in these areas, you can return home now.  There will be more law enforcement personnel in your neighborhood to keep you safe.  You do not need to check in with anyone and you do not need a law enforcement escort.  If you are coming from the south, you’ll need to access your neighborhood via the Highway 101 corridor because Highway 12 is still closed near Glen Ellen.
East of Santa Rosa:  All areas north of Highway 12 and east of Calistoga Road to Melita Road that are outside the burn area.  This area is now open except for the road closures listed below.

  • Los Alamos Road is closed at Scotland Drive. 
  • Melita Road is closed at Kertsinger Road. 
  • The easternmost section of Melita Road is closed at Highway 12.
