Bobcat Fire No Immediate Threat to Pasadena, Evacuation Warning Remains in Effect

PASADENA, Calif.—An evacuation warning remains in effect for residents in the foothill neighborhoods of Pasadena. While there is no immediate threat, conditions could change rapidly, so stay ready! Have a plan in place (including for any animals you have) and pack supplies ahead of time in case you need to evacuate. See Los Angeles County Fire Department's Ready, Set, Go Guide for preparation tips.

The majority of the Bobcat Fire's growth yesterday occurred on the north and south ends. Fire crews worked actively throughout the night getting a foothold in the southern end of the fire to protect the foothill communities. Poor air quality due to smoke cover was experienced in foothill communities and limited the use of aircraft.

Today, fire crews will continue to focus on increasing containment lines along the south end of the fire. Throughout the day, heavy fire activity is expected on both the south and north ends. Local fire departments will continue to conduct structure protection within the foothill communities. Visit InciWeb for more details.

Pasadena continues to experience unhealthy air quality due to wildfire smoke. Protect yourself and loved ones by:

• Avoiding outdoor activity

• Wearing a mask outdoors

• Closing all windows

• Running an air purifier/ running AC on “recirculate” setting

• Bringing pets indoors

Curbside pickup service at Central Library has been canceled today due to smoke conditions.
