FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Angeles National Forest will continue the Temporary Emergency Closure through the Weekend

ARCADIA, CA — October 22, 2007

ARCADIA, Calif. — As a result of extreme fire danger, and to protect public health and safety, Angeles National Forest officials will continue the temporary emergency Forest closure for awhile longer. The closure became effective last week on October 23, 2007 and it is projected to last until conditions have improved.

"It is our intent to get the Forest re-opened to the public as soon as possible," Jody Noiron, Forest Supervisor, said. "However, with the extreme fire danger, ongoing fires in Southern California and the predicted strong weekend winds, we need to make public health and safety our primary concern. We will reassess the situation early next week to see if things have changed so that we can lift the closure."

Individuals or organizations holding special use permits for sanctioned activities within the Forest are exempt from this order.

While the closure is in effect, going into or being upon National Forest System lands, roads, or trails within the Angeles National Forest is not allowed. The closure will affect the use of all National Forest recreational facilities, roads and hiking trails. Violators are subject to fines and/or imprisonment.

Most County roads and state highways, such as the Angeles Crest Highway (Hwy 2), will remain open to through traffic. However, Glendora Mountain Road (GMR) is closed from Big Dalton Road to East Fork. The Glendora Ridge Road is closed from the junction with GMR to Mt. Baldy Village. Chantry Road is also closed.

For more information on the closure on the Angeles NF, please contact one of the offices listed below
Forest Supervisor's Office, Arcadia — (626) 574-1613
Los Angeles River Ranger District, Tujunga — (818) 899-1900

Note: The Santa Clara Mojave Rivers Ranger District which was located in Saugus, CA was destroyed in the Buckweed fire and a temporary office will be re-established soon.
