Blue Cut Fire Continues to Threaten Homes

As of Friday, August 19, fire officials have stated that the Blue Cut Fire in the Cajon Pass has grown to 37,002 acres. Firefighter crews continue to focus much of their efforts protecting the communities west of the fire, including Wrightwood and Lytle Creek, which comprise the highest housing density in the area.

Relentless winds, low humidity, and high temperatures have created challenges that have made the fire difficult to contain since it began on Tuesday. Reports state that although the Blue Cut Fire has stopped moving east and north, the red-flag warnings will remain in place.

Some mandatory evacuations were lifted. In addition, the 15 Freeway, a crucial commuter and trucking route that runs from San Diego to Nevada, was reopened. The two-day closure of the 15 Freeway caused traffic congestion, which contributed to additional problems for travelers and individuals attempting to evacuate. The California Highway Patrol states that Highway 138 will remain closed until further notice.
