Amador-El Dorado-Sacramento Unit

Camino – The residents of the Amador-El Dorado-Sacramento Unit of CAL FIRE are seeing hazy skies and may be smelling smoke throughout the area due to fire activity outside the unit. Southern winds are pushing smoke into our area from the Aspen Fire in Fresno County which is located 7 miles northwest of Big Creek on the Sierra National Forest. 

This fire was reported to be over 11,000 acres and only 20% contained as of this morning. There are also several fires in the state of Oregon which are sending smoke from the north into our local area.

For information on smoke and your health please review this information from El Dorado County Public Health.

Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
