Monday Morning Update: Lake Fire Holding at 30,726 Acres Burned; Containment Up To 60%
[UPDATED AT 7:15AM MONDAY 6/29/15] The U.S. Forest Service reported this morning that the Lake Fire burning in the San Bernardino Mountains is now approximately 30,726 acres in size and is now 60% contained. As kvcrnews.org reported over the weekend, Highway 38 was reopened to public traffic Saturday morning. Yesterday, the last evacuation order was lifted -- in the Burns Caynon area near the northeastern perimeter. That means that all evacuation orders have been lifted. The Forest Service says all Forest Service lands within the affected fire area remain closed for recreation purposes.
We will have further updates on the Lake Fire as we are able to get them posted.
