Fire crews have contained the remaining open fire line in the southern region. Threat levels remain low in the Bonny Doon and Swanton areas. However, residents should remain alert to possible fire activity occurring in and around the fire area. If anyone witnesses a large amount of smoke production in the burn area, call the Lockheed Fire Information Line at 831-335-0378.Lingering smoke will be present as fire crews continue to fully control the incident. We would like residents driving in the communities affected by the fire to remain cautious of the fire personnel and equipment working to extinguish the fire. Additionally, residents need to be cautious when walking in or near the burned area. Smoldering brush and stumps may be found and are still dangerous. Heavy mop-up is continuing for all other areas of the fire. A damage assessment was completed. Structures damaged/destroyed include 4 seasonal cabins.

On behalf of the CAL FIRE Incident Command Team 9, we would like to thank the residents of Bonny Doon, Davenport and the Swanton and Last Chance areas. Your patience and understanding during the evacuation assisted the firefighters in extinguishing the wildfire that threatened the area. We encourage all residents to comply with the 100 foot clearances around all structures
