WorldAware is following developments of the El Dorado Fire affecting San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. The fire started late September 5 at El Dorado Ranch Park in Yucaipa. As of September 17, at least 1,352 personnel are on-site battling the blaze and 16 structures are either damaged or destroyed. Several evacuation orders and transport disruptions are ongoing. Hot and dry conditions may hamper firefighting efforts, and additional wildfire growth is possible. Anticipate the status of nearby roads to change over the coming hours and days; authorities could close routes within the wildfire complex and evacuated communities due to fire activity and the needs of response operations. Traffic flows could also be disrupted during re-entry periods after authorities lift evacuation orders. Low visibility from smoke and possible ashfall could contribute to traffic delays and congestion in the region.
