The El Dorado fire is now 44% contained and has burned 14,478 acres. It’s threatening the community of Angelus Oaks.

The fire burned actively Sunday night and has become established into Mountain Home Creek.

Fire officials are asking any remaining residents in Angelus Oaks to evacuate now.

Firefighters have built a contingency line between the El Dorado fire and Angelus Oaks.

The fire is near the small mountain community but burning towards San Bernardino Peak.

Mountain Home, Forest Falls, 7 Oaks and the Barton Flats area are also under evacuation orders.

The El Dorado fire was started by a smoke bomb set off at a gender-reveal party in Yucaipa on September 5th.

The San Bernardino National Forest is closed until further notice.
