Knoxville Wildlife Area Closes Again, Due to Jerusalem Fire

Because of the Jerusalem Fire, Knoxville Wildlife Area is closed as of today, August 10, until further notice. This area was closed for several days last week due to the Rocky Fire, but reopened briefly over the weekend.

Interested members of the public can call (707) 944-5547 for updates on the closure. The message will be revised as more information becomes available.

In addition, the public can monitor the status of the fire at www.fire.ca.gov/general/firemaps.php.

Due to the uncertain nature of the wildfires in the area, it is unknown when the wildlife area will reopen.
