Fire activity to the north/east of Hartland in the Redwood Canyon area has increased significantly today.
At this point, things don’t appear to be moving as rapidly to the east of Hartland. However, for those that are familiar with the area, fire has now reached Pierce Pond, so it is still moving west toward containment lines and Hartland.
By the grace of God, fire has not touched Hartland property up to this point.
Thank you all for your ongoing prayers!!!
Here is the latest IR map so you can see the fire progress. The good news is that there is still room between Hartland property and the fire edge.
Thank you for continuing to pray.
More to come as we get new information.
Here's a short video montage of the preparations firefighters are working on to keep Hartland safe.

At this time, Hartland is not in imminent danger...however, depending on how successful they are at containing the fire – things could change...
Today, Hartland was placed under an evacuation warning. Our staff have been and are continuing to prepare the facility in the event things change.
