After a fire, many trees are weakened from burning around the base of the trunk. The trees can fall over or blow down without warning. Shallow-rooted trees can also fall. Therefore be extremely alert when around burned trees. More information about hazardous trees can be found here.

Mariposa Pines has received a Boiled Water Notice. Please review that information here. As you prepare to re-enter the Mariposa Pines subdivision following the Oak Fire, there are a few things to keep in mind.
- There was damage to the main water line that has been repaired. Water is again in the system for homes.
- When you return, you should open and run the nearest hose bib to your main water line (where the pipe from the street comes into your house) until any sediment clears.
