Tuolumne City Is Open
Rim Fire Staging in Downtown Tuolumne
Tuolumne County, CA -- The advisory evacuation notice for Tuolumne City has been lifted by the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office.
Fire officials have successfully created a strong containment line near the community.
"There will be periodic road closures within the city, so we still ask that motorists be cautious of that," adds Scott Johnson, Sheriff's Office Spokesperson. "Access to Ponderosa Hills remains restricted to residents and emergency services only, and Ponderosa Hills is going to remain under the evacuation advisement."
Willow Springs and Soulsbyville also remain under the evacuation advisory, but fire activity has slowed down in those areas as well. In addition, an evacuation advisement still remains in effect for areas along the Highway 108 corridor, stretching from Mi Wuk to Pinecrest.
The road closure at Buchanan/Cottonwood and Sunrise Drive also remains in effect.
