Morning update - Returning to the Evacuation Area

Posted on June 13, 2018 at 7:18 AM by Julie Sutor

Today, Wednesday, June 13, 2018, starting at 7:00 a.m., residents and guests living above the road closures at either Twenty Grand and Ryan Gulch Road on the Wildernest side and Starlight and Royal Buffalo Drive on the Mesa Cortina side will be allowed to temporarily return to their homes to collect personal items.

The last entry into the area will be allowed at 10:00 a.m. with everyone required to be out of the area by 11:00 a.m. Check points are in place and anyone attempting to enter this area will be required to show some form of verifying information that they live or are staying past the road closure. This allowance this morning is subject to immediate change should the fire behavior change or pose any unacceptable risk to these areas.
