All other areas under evacuation order are still closed.  We will send an alert for each area as it re-opens. Continue to follow the instructions of first responders in the area and make sure to listen for hi-lo sirens if fire conditions change. Use extreme caution when around any burned areas that may be present. The burn area is under a Public Health Order due to health hazards created by the fire.
