Fire specialists have lifted the road closure of Forest Road 213. The road was temporarily closed for public and firefighter safety while managing the 1,700 acre Tortilla Fire on the south side of Highway 88 near Fish Creek.
The fire is 50% contained and is still being managed. Due to current monsoon humidity, lightning-caused fires can be allowed to play their natural role in the forest ecosystem.
