According to the American Red Cross, an evacuation shelter is located at the Solid Rock Church, at the intersection of Hwy 3 and Tule Creek Road in Hayfork.
According to Mountain Valley Unified School District,
Due to the fire road closure, the school bus will only be running to just before Lucky Trail on Hyampom Road. We are all thinking of our students, their families, and their community that are being affected by the Kerlin Fire in Hyampom and wishing for their continued safety!
The bus run will resume its normal route as soon as the road has opened.
The temperatures will be in the nineties today with a slight wind coming from the northwest in the afternoon.
Trinity County Department of Transportation tweeted a map to the road closures last night.
