 Taboose Fire Update 9/10/19


With updated mapping, the Taboose Fire is estimated at 9,235 acres with 30% containment this morning. Firefighters continued working through the night and were able to improve and strengthen containment lines while monitoring for increased fire activity. The expected wind last night did not materialize which resulted in a relatively calm night for firefighters. The active part of the fire currently is inside the fire perimeter at Stecker Flat and Shingle Mill.
Evacuation advisories and orders for the affected areas are still in effect. Wind conditions are expected to be less than yesterday, but residents are asked to remain vigilant and be prepared should evacuation needs arise. Should there be a need for evacuation, residents with landlines will receive a reverse 911 call advising of such. Residents utilizing cell phones are encouraged to register their numbers with the Code Red system. This can be done through the Inyo County Sheriff’s office at Public.Coderedweb.com.
