No change in evacuation levels yet

Fire PIO Ben Shearer Ben Shearer looks at a map of the fire while fielding calls from reporters and the public about 7:15 this morning.

Evacuation levels on the Grass Valley Fire have not changed since last night, officials say.

Although milder conditions have allowed the fire behavior to settle down today, that could change, and hot areas still close to towns flare up with a new wind.

I would expect a new assessment in the near future, after firefighters get a better overall look at the total fire from the air.

SR-174 is still closed from Leahy Junction to Grand Coulee. SR-155 is open, as is SR-17.

Businesses are open in the Grand Coulee Dam area.
