Evacuation Warning: Bobcat Fire
The City of Arcadia is advising all residents north of Foothill Blvd. and east of Santa Anita Ave. to prepare for evacuation due to the Bobcat Fire.
The City of Arcadia and the Arcadia Fire Department are actively monitoring the situation. Santa Ana Winds and high heat are forecast throughout the evening, creating a potential for shifting fire patterns that may threaten homes in the City’s urban-wildland interface.
Residents should make evacuation plans now, including overnight accommodations. Evacuation sites for those displaced are being prepared—more information will follow should an Evacuation Order be issued.
Those with large animals, horses and cattle, should begin to move those animals now. Do not wait until the Evacuation Order to begin moving them out of the area. Accommodations are being made for animals at the Pomona Fairgrounds and Santa Anita Race Track (limited capacity). To find out more information regarding the evacuation centers, please call 1-800-RED-CROSS (733-2767).
Those residents who need more time to evacuate, please make arrangements or plans to evacuate now in case an Evacuation Order is issued.
As a reminder, residents following Ready, Set, Go! should have evacuation plans in place, organized their emergency evacuation supplies, and have essential evacuation personal belongings easily accessible. Vehicles should be fully fueled, facing out in their driveways and ready to Go!
Arcadia residents outside the evacuation zone with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children, are advised to stay indoors. Poor air quality conditions are a health threat and should be avoided by all residents in smoky communities.
