In the initial release, it was reported that Barnun Road was a viable route for those under mandatory evacuation for the areas south of Highway 36 in Bridgeville, and all communities along Alderpoint Road down to the Mendocino / Trinity County Line. Barnum Road is NOT a viable evacuation route from the wildfires as it is not a public road. Please continue to utilize Elk Creek Road, Dyerville Loop Road, Fort Seward Road or Alderpoint Road.
