Salinas, Calif., August 21, 2016, 6:00 p.m.—For Immediate Release.

Evacuation warnings have lifted for the east side of Highway 1 from Andrew Molera State Park to Coast Ridge Road at the Ventana Inn. This includes the Ventana Inn and Coast Ridge Road to 1.5 miles above Ventana Inn.

Evacuation orders remain in effect for Coast Ridge Road from 1.5 miles above the Ventana Inn to the end of Coast Ridge Road at Marble Peak, and roads that leave from Coast Ridge Road.

Evacuation warnings remain in effect from the Tassajara Road from Carmel Valley to the Tassajara Hot Springs Zen Center, and roads that leave from Tassajara Road.

Many communities surrounding Monterey County have been effected by evacuation warnings and orders since July 22, 2016 when an illegal campfire ignited the Soberanes Fire.

The USDA Forest Service, CAL FIRE, and cooperators would like to thank the public for their continued cooperation and understanding during the warnings and evacuations. Fire managers continue to monitor the need for evacuations based on current and expected fire behavior.
