Fire officials are now advising residents who live in the area of the Hunt Fire — Poole Station Road, Hunt Road and Circle XX — to be prepared for possible evacuation orders.
CDF says this is an advisory ONLY at this time. It was issued at 1 p.m. Wednesday, August 11.
The advisory is due to the unpredictability of the fire and existing fire conditions in that area of Calaveras County.
Authorities say if it becomes necessary …sheriff deputies and law enforcement officers will go door to door telling residents to leave.
If asked to leave, you should travel north on Poole Station Road. The Red Cross has set up an evacuation center at Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp.
Contact the Calaveras County Animal Control if you need assistance with animal evacuations and transportation.
AGAIN this is only an advisory.
