November 25, 2020 - The Creek Fire has low potential for growth given the current winter conditions. The fire activity on the Forest has significantly decreased and the Creek Fire management team has since transitioned to a Type 3 organization, local to the Sierra National Forest.
Although fire activity has significantly decreased, there is a continuous need for restoration. The Forest is currently occupied by emergency personnel and equipment actively engaged in rehabilitation efforts within the Forest closure. Forest personnel continue to engage in active restoration efforts, including the use of tree falling, construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance of fuel breaks. Soil erosion and rockslides are a cause for concern within burn areas.
Due to these conditions, the Sierra National Forest is announcing the extension of a temporary closure and offering a greater access to the public for recreation while continuing to provide for public safety.
