The Big Bear Fire Department, San Bernardino County Fire, CAL Fire and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department have issued an advisory asking visitors to cancel their trips to Big Bear due to the El Dorado Fire. It is being issued in response to yesterday’s expanded evacuation order and closure of the Highway 39 corridor between Angelus Oaks and Onyx Summit.
Please see the attached advisory, which asks visitors to postpone trips until the fire threat has passed.
The advisory is not an evacuation warning; however, residents should be prepared in case a warning or order is announced. Residents are highly encouraged to sign up for San Bernardino County’s Telephone Emergency Notification System for emergency notifications and updates to be sent to their phones.
