The Rest of the Story

For those of you following the impact of the massive Creek Fire on hikers in the central Sierra Nevada, this came over the wires today..from local Law Enforcement:


The following message is directed to folks who were forced to leave their vehicles behind once they had to escape the #CreekFire. Primarily, these are people who were in the high country in Fresno County; specifically in places such as China Peak, Mono Hot Springs, Edison Lake and Florence Lake.

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is in the process of making arrangements, once conditions become safe, to provide transportation for the vehicle owners to retrieve their vehicles. The majority of these folks were air evacuated by the Army National Guard and their vehicles were left behind.

We are asking you to provide us the following information:

-First and last name

-Phone number

-License plate number

-Vehicle description

-Name on vehicle registration

-Location of vehicle

Please email the information to tony.botti@fresnosheriff.org

At this time, we are prioritizing for those visitors parked at various campsites. We are not making arrangements to retrieve vehicles parked at homes.

Members of the public who have already contacted our office and given us the above information do not need to contact us again.
