Current Events and Incident Information
RUBICON FIRE September 25, 2021 2:30 pm
Forward progress on the Rubicon Fire has been stopped at between 7 and 10 acres. All aircraft have been released from the fire and ground crews continue to make progress on securing containment.
The Rubicon Fire is burning in the King Fire scar where there is a great deal of down and dead fuels as well as standing dead tress. Standing dead trees are call snags and their fragile condition make them a significant safety hazard to firefighters working around them. The heavy down dead fuels remaining from the King Fire make containment and final extinguishment more difficult.
Confidence is high that the fire will remain in it's current footprint and will not experience further growth. This will be our last update on the Rubicon Fire unless conditions change.
THE RUBICON FIRE IS NOT A CURRENT THREAT TO THE FORESTHILL DIVIDE AND THERE ARE NO EVACUATION WARNINGS FOR THE FORESTHILL AREA.
