Blue Cut Fire Update

The Blue Cut fire has moved near the town of Wrightwood. Wrightwood Methodist Camp is the site of the Los Angeles County Outdoor Science School at Wrightwood.

The Blue Cut Fire started on August 16th in the Cajon Pass along Old Cajon Blvd. north of Kenwood Avenue and west of Interstate 15. The fire quickly spotted across Cajon Creek and grew into a large wildland fire. During the course of the fire fight, railroad lines, local roads, highway 138 and Interstate 15 were closed along with a large evacuation area that included Lytle Creek, Wrightwood, Summit Valley, Baldy Mesa, Phelan and Oak Hills. 

Minimal fire behavior was observed August 23rd which allowed the completion of the containment lines. Crews continue to
monitor and patrol for hot spots inside of the fire perimeter and perform fire line rehabilitation.
