CHP from all over California and other police agencies are assisting the Tuolumne County effort. This is area is in a STATE of Declaired Emergency there are far more resources available than usual.
We live above Groveland and had a couple young guys driving around in a white truck with a small forestry sticker. The neighborhood is one loop and they were driving around for a bit talking to some out on the road and then telling one house they had 25 minutes to get out. They picked the wrong house because she had been a Hot Shot at one point and questioned why and called the sheriff. Two sheriffs cars came through but by then the guys were gone. My advice is question all the people in your neighborhood you don't recognize. We don't have to leave after all but had decided to keep the gate locked if we did instead of giving access to fire fighters. Sucks that we now have to worry about losing everything in the fire & then come back to a house that's been looted.
Your home is safer now than before the fire.
