Suppression crews made good progress today and were able to construct additional control lines. Damage Inspection Teams continue to gather damage data in the affected areas. The inspection process is meticulous and ongoing. As additional information becomes available, the numbers of damaged or destroyed structures may change.
Today at 3PM, the mandatory evacuation order was lifted for the neighborhoods east of State Highway 53 from Polk Avenue, south to Cache Creek. This included the area of Clearlake referred to as “The Avenues”. The cancellation of additional evacuation orders are being evaluated based on a variety of factors including potential fire behavior and re-establishment of critical infrastructure.
