Blythe, California: A large vegetation fire being called the “Lost Lake Fire” continues to burn along the Colorado River near the Lost Lake Resort.
Since the large vegetation fire started in the morning on Thursday, May 26th, 2022, the Lost Lake Resort was under evacuation orders because of the vegetation fire.
But the evacuation orders have been lifted for the Lost Lake Resort.
Meanwhile the vegetation fire continues to burn and has so far burned 5,715 acres and is at 34 percent contained.
The vegetation fire is most active along the Colorado River basin on both sides of the river.
Firefighters are working to stop the fire’s northern progression by using six large helicopters that are supporting firefighters on the ground who are using heavy equipment, a fire boat, and engines to contain the fire’s spread.
Power was restored to the Hidden Valley Resort at 11:00 a.m. PT today.
