Per Sonoma County officials:

There could still be smoke in the respective areas as firefighters continue firefighting operations. If at any time you feel unsafe, please call 911. The public is reminded to stay vigilant on current fire conditions. Please continue to adhere to road closures and any evacuation warnings. If you see electrical wires on the ground, stay clear and contact PG&E immediately. Trees and poles with deep charring, particularly if still smoking, should be considered hazardous. Please drive slowly and yield to emergency personnel in the area. As you re-enter your property and evaluate damage, be aware that hazardous conditions may exist, particularly if a residence or out-building has burned. Hazards may include asbestos, heavy metals, by-products of plastic combustion, and various other chemicals.

All other mandatory evacuation areas are still closed. We will send an alert for each area as it re-opens. If you have any questions, call the Sonoma County hotline at 707-565-38
