This from a knowledgeable source… The sheriff deputies are up here, are visiting every residence in the evac zone, leaving notes for whoever is not home. If it goes mandatory they will come by again. That’s how it worked for Wedge fire.
You need to read the full report, but it includes… This warning is based on the recommendation of the Incident Command and fire experts involved with the Whale Butte Fire. Specific area under this evacuation warning is from 12340 to 13595 North Fork Rd., 50 to 1327 Moose Creek Rd., 600 to 876 Deep Woods Trl. (See attached map)
This report also says that Whale Buttes can be found on Inciweb, but we haven’t found it yet.
