The Soberanes Fire is now one-hundred percent contained and controlled. The fire closure order that went into effect September 3 for the entire Monterey Ranger District has been reduced to the fire scar. This current closure will help ensure that members of the public are not injured within the fire perimeter, allow for the scorched landscape to begin the rehabilitation process, and help reduce the potential for another human-caused fire. The southern portion of the Monterey Ranger District, including the Silver Peak Wilderness, is now open to the public. For more information, please contact the Monterey Ranger District at (831) 385-5434. Law enforcement capacity is actively enforcing the order.
