DELTA FIRE, Calif. -- Fire officials hav announced that all mandatory evacuations in Shasta County for the Delta Fire have been lifted as of 12 p.m., September 16, 2018.

They're asking the public to stay vigilant on current fire conditions. Drivers are asked to move slowly and yield to emergency personnel
in the area. They say there will still be smoke as firefighters continue their operations. 

Shasta-Trinity National Forest officials have combined the previously issued Hirz Fire Closure Order and Delta

Order says all previously closed forest roads, trails, and facilities remain closed with the following exceptions:
• The Pacific Crest Trail between Ash Camp and Gumboot is now open with no restrictions.
• All campgrounds east of Interstate 5 along Gilman Road are now open.
• Hirz Bay Boat Launch has been reopened. The McCloud Arm of Shasta Lake remains open for water
traffic.
• Access to Girard Ridge Lookout has been restored. For more information regarding facility usage and reservations, the McCloud Ranger Station can be reached at (530) 964-2184
