According to L.A. County Fire, there is currently no concern about the fire impacting Santa Clarita or Sand Canyon. Fire personnel were able to do some back burns last night and dumped 20,000 gallons of retardant on the Santa Clara Ridge.
The current strategy of bringing this fire to a successful conclusion is dependent upon meeting critical resource needs and current weather conditions improving (cooling trend and/or increase in moisture).
Road Closures are as follows:
- Angeles Crest Highway between Palmdale and La Canada Flintridge
- All roads within the mandatory evacuation locations
- Osborne Street at the 210 Freeway (Incident Command Operations)
Exits on Highway 14 are open; however, access is not permitted on streets eastbound toward the Antelope Valley.
Air Quality continues to be an issue for the Santa Clarita Valley and residents are still being encouraged to limit outdoor activity.
