Bond Fire on the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks

​On Wednesday, December 2, the Bond Fire broke out near Silverado Canyon and Black Star Canyon. As of Wednesday, December 9, 90% of the Bond Fire has been contained, burning 6,686 acres of land in the area.
 
All evacuation orders in Silverado Canyon and surrounding communities have been lifted, but the public should remain vigilant and adhere to any road closures. Fire crews working on infrastructure and unseen dangers may remain present in and around the burn areas. Please stay clear of the burn areas. Accessing these areas is not only extremely unsafe, but also damaging to the land, making recovery and restoration efforts more challenging.
​We are thankful to our firefighters, OC Parks staff, and City of Irvine Parks staff for their efforts in responding to the Bond Fire. We also appreciate Fire Watch volunteers who continue to protect the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks and surrounding communities during wildfire incidents. During this time, 7-day access trails in the City of Irvine and other coastal open space preserves remain open, but be sure to limit outdoor activities if air quality is unhealthy.
