As of 8 o'clock Saturday morning, the Thomas Fire was 281,893 acres and 92% contained. There was no growth overnight and containment remained the same.

Los Padres National Forest officials say crews are continuing to do mop up and fire suppression repair.

If you see fire activity near established control lines, you're asked to call 911 to report it.

Highway 33 opened to the public Friday night at 6 o'clock. Travelers should note, that National Forest System lands within the Thomas Fire burn area remain closed to the public.

The Los Padres National Forest issued a Forest Order effective Jan. 1, 2018 through the end of the 2018 fire season. Level 3 fire restrictions are in effect with campfires allowed only in designated use sites and no fires allowed in the backcountry; portable stoves and lanterns (with an on-off switch) are only permitted with a valid California Campfire Permit.

The Los Padres National Forest has reduced its closure order to only the Thomas Fire perimeter on National Forest System lands within the Santa Barbara and Ojai Ranger Districts.  The Mount Pinos Ranger District is now open to the public.
