Riverside County Supervisors Marion Ashley and Jeff Stone said Friday that they will seek county financial relief for Silver Fire property owners who want to rebuild in the aftermath of the wind-driven inferno.
Banning – The Riverside County Sheriff's Department, in cooperation with the CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department/OES is lifting the Evacuation Order for the communities of Snow Creek, Cabazon, Mt. Edna, and Poppet Flats as of 6:00 PM today. Only local residents in these affected areas will be allowed to repopulate and must have an access pass until further notice.
Low-income residents who have lost their homes in the Silver Fire, or who have had to run their air conditioning units more than usual to avoid harmful smoke, may qualify for one-time assistance from the Community Action Partnership of Riverside County.
Riverside County proclaimed a local emergency today because of the Silver Fire, a step that could make the county eligible to receive disaster funds if state and federal officials recognize the emergency and make assistance available.
