Lake Christine Fire PIO

Emergency responders and public works crews are continuing to work Monday morning on flooding response and clean-up following heavy rains and mudslides that occurred Sunday across the Lake Christine burn scar.

Around 30 homes were impacted, but no injuries have been reported.

There was also no loss of property reported as of late Sunday night, but there is mud around homes.

Frying Pan Road and Two Rivers Road reopened late last evening, and Cedar Drive and Pinion Drive were reported reopened overnight.

Road closures may be reinstated as necessary for cleanup or safety reasons.
