Some national forests in California ordered closed due to fire danger

The U.S. Forest Service announced on Labor Day that it’s temporarily closing some national forests and adding restrictions at others because of dangerous fire conditions.

The closures go into effect at 5 p.m. Monday. No reopening date has been set.

The closed national forests include:

  • Stanislaus National Forest
  • Sierra National Forest
  • Sequoia National Forest
  • Inyo National Forest
  • Los Padres National Forest
  • Angeles National Forest
  • San Bernardino National Forest
  • Cleveland National Forest
  • Tahoe National Forest

Additionally, campfires and gas stoves are not being allowed on National Forest System lands. Developed campgrounds and day-use sites on national forests in California are also closed.

“The wildfire situation throughout California is dangerous and must be taken seriously. Existing fires are displaying extreme fire behavior, new fire starts are likely, weather conditions are worsening, and we simply do not have enough resources to fully fight and contain every fire,” Randy Moore, regional forester for the USDA Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region, said in a prepared statement.

The Creek Fire burning in the Sierra National Forest ignited Friday and made a 15-mile run in a day, chewing through thousands of acres and prompting evacuation orders, according to the Forest Service.
