To provide for public and firefighter safety, the Ochoco National Forest has implemented an area closure around the Desolation Fire this afternoon. Unless authorized by a Forest Officer, people are prohibited from being on roads, trails or any area within the closure, exempting Highway 26.
The closure roughly runs from Wildcat Campground north to the junction of FS Road 2745/2730, east along the 2730 to the Ochoco Divide Sno-Park, southwest to White Rock and tying into Wildcat again. The complete closure order and associated map can be found at the following link:
