Stanislaus National Forest Revises Closure Order for Donnell Fire as Roads and Trails Outside Fire Closure Reopen to the Public

Sonora, CA...Stanislaus National Forest Supervisor Jason Kuiken signed forest order STF-16-2018-14, revising the areas closed due to the Donnell Fire. Campgrounds and day use areas on Highway 108 east of Donnell Vista remain closed, but trails and roads south of Forest Road 5N01 are open to visitors. This closure is based on the current and expected fire behavior and safety concerns due to prior fire activity. It will be in effect until Dec. 31, 2018, or until replaced or rescinded.




Crews and firefighters with heavy equipment and driving emergency vehicles continue to work in active fire areas. For crew and public safety, Forest Order 16-2018-14 identifies an area of Summit Ranger District that remains closed to public access. The forest order and accompanying map can be found at https://go.usa.gov/xUvWQ.

Visitors can now stop at Donnell Vista, use off-highway vehicles and hike south of 5N01, Kuiken said. “We know how important recreating on the forest is for our visitors and I’m glad the current fire situation allows us to reopen these areas. Regarding areas still closed, we have installed signs and posted notices to alert the public about these temporary closures. We ask everyone to remain outside the closure area until it reopens.”

Hunting season begins Sept. 15 and the fire closure area means traditional hunting areas are affected, so visitors are urged to be vigilant. “It’s best to avoid wearing white, tan, brown or black clothing,” Kuiken said. “Be sure to wear blaze orange and make yourself visible. These opening weekends are generally the most active for hunters, so please maintain a high sense of situational awareness while you’re out enjoying the forest.”

The Donnell Fire ignited at 5:49 p.m. Aug. 1, 2018 near Donnell Lake on Highway 108 east of Pinecrest. It has so far burned more than 36,000 acres and is 90 percent contained.

On and on it goes, the Circus is milking the fire, if we only knew the truth about the fire condition, it would probably change! 40 guy's tending to a burning stump up in the granite! Before you attack me, at least I know from experience, I worked for that outfit, they know how to waste taxpayer's money, and at the same time control the public like they own your forest!

          What Masnafort is guilty of has nothing to do with Trump.
          President Trump is only guilty of erasing Obongo's screw-ups and Making America Great Again.

          Wow, what a pathetic loser who's still crying that the old, corrupt Kunt lost the presidential election.
          Dude, you need to take a few Midols and face the facts that the democrats slit their own throats
          having a Clinton in the race was suicidal for us. Yep, I'm a democrat, but I'd never even consider voting for a Clinton.
          The Clintons are the most corrupt family in American politics.
          It's a shame that someone like Trump could even win, but I guess when someone
          runs on the platform on ''Making America Great Again'' AND/OR ''Securing Our Borders'' that's a win win.

    I worry about this too, but I think there is not enough information to know. If anyone is now earning overtime to watch stumps smolder, then that is a fraud on taxpayers. But if CalFire has men assigned on their regular shift to watch that this fire doesn't flare again, I think that is simply prudent. In the latter case I would assume most or all could be shifted to higher priority tasks if there was, for example, another fire that needed full manpower.

    So for me the real question is this: Is overtime being paid to anyone after the emergency had passed?

        I wish they would rename the Donnell Fire to Prescribe Burn.

          Thank God, Spicer Res. was located where it's at. The town of Murphy would be ash. Want to talk about a bunch of ass scratchers.

      USFS has nothing to worry about, because CalFire is as corrupt as they are.
      Search out the Moonlight fire case involving our very own unit chief as an example.
