Forest Highway 7 closed
Forest Highway 7 has been closed to all traffic near the area of Telephone Camp in western Glenn County due to the Pass Fire, fire officials said.
The fire is moving in three directions: north, south and east, and has the potential to move into western Glenn County, possibly affecting the areas of Spanish Ridge, Plaskett Ridge and Snow Basin, officials reported.
The Glenn County Sheriff's Office has issued an evacuation advisory for those areas and is restricting access to all areas west of Telephone Camp.
Sheriff Larry Jones urges hunters also to stay out of the area until the fire is contained.
