State of Emergency

 Blue Cut Fire Information


Tuesday August 16, the Blue Cut Fire started near Interstate 15 in the Cajon Pass, causing mandatory evacuations and major travel challenges across our region.

As the situation develops, the most up-to-date information on road closures, shelters, school closures, and other resources is available on the Incident Information System (InciWeb) at

Anyone seeking more information may call the Fire Information Hotline at
909-383-5688, which includes a regularly updated recording on the status of the fire (please be aware that you will only likely get a recording if you call this number).

Senator Morrell’s office is monitoring the situation closely. A State of Emergency has been declared, which will make state resources available in the response efforts.

“I’m grateful to those working to contain the fire. To all who are impacted, please stay safe.” comments Senator Mike Morrell
