Standing evacuation orders for Lost Valley of the San Juans are in place. Please stay out of the area to provide emergency responders the ability to focus on the fire suppression efforts and evacuation notices.  Please do NOT fly any drones in the area as this will prevent firefighting air resources from operating.
