Good News!

All evacuation orders for the Serpa fire have been lifted.

Some streets nearby are restricted to residents only while mop up operations are being performed.

The fire started above Highway 41, across from Serpa Canyon near Veater Ranch, yesterday afternoon about 1:00 pm.

Air tankers dropped fire retardant and helicopters dropped water to restrict the fire from spreading across numerous ridges covered in dead Ponderosa pines trees.

We have no reports yet if any structures were lost.

Residents in nearby Mudge Ranch, Cavin Lane, and Road 420 areas were evacuated for quite some time. Thanks to the fire crews for their quick response and hard work.
