Evacuated residents with ID were being allowed back into the Yankee Jims and Brushy Creek area starting at 9 a.m. this morning.
 
Favorable weather conditions are continuing to aid firefighters in strengthening and holding fire lines. Unburned areas of brush, within containment lines, may continue to periodically burn.
 
Yankee Jims Road between Canyon Way and Gillis Hill Road will open but a complete closure from that intersection eastward remains in place for Yankee Jims Road.
 
Yankee Jims Road east of Small Hope Mine Lane will be open in the direction of the communities of Yankee Jims and Foresthill.
 
Sheriff's personnel will be at the Small Hope Mine Lane intersection to ensure only local residents with some form of ID or utility bill, etc., clearly identifying the bearer as a local resident, are allowed access to the area.
 
Residents of the Foresthill Communities are requested to not travel west into the canyon on Yankee Jims Road until further notice due to continuing fire activity and road rehabilitation.
 
South of Iowa Hill, a complete closure remains for Shirt Tail Canyon Road at Big Dipper Road. Mandatory evacuation of residents on Kings Hill Road remains in effect until further notice.
 
Estimated cost of the fire to date: $10,300,000
