Florecita Voluntary Evacuation Lifted

As of 11 a.m. today an advisory for voluntary evacuation of the Florecita neighborhood in Pasadena has been lifted.

Residents of the area may return to their homes and are advised to monitor local television and radio news and the city website for updates.

All Pasadena residents and businesses should review their personal, family and workplace emergency plans and make sure their emergency preparedness kits are up to date. More information about disaster preparedness can be found here or by calling the Pasadena Fire Department at (626) 744-7276.

Smoke and ash from the Station Fire are particularly heavy today, so everyone is advised by the Pasadena Public Health Department to avoid outside activity, especially elderly residents, children, people who have heart or respiratory health issues, and those whose immune systems are compromised.
