When The Creek Fire began burning in Fresno and Madera Counties,
Madera County Probation Officers stepped in to help support
CalFire and Madera County Sheriff’s Department with evacuations.
This is California’s largest single fire consuming over 365,000
acres and destroying about 1,000 structures. As the fire
progressed away from populated areas, Probation Officers assisted
with monitoring evacuated areas, managing traffic control, and
eventually escorting homeowners safely back to their homes
when evacuation orders lifted.
