Brush Fire East of Trabuco Canyon Road in Cleveland National Forest

To All Village Homeowners,

At around 5am this morning a brush fire broke out just northeast of our community near Gypson Canyon, Holy Jim Canyon and Bell Ridge, east of Trabuco Canyon Road. A large plume of smoke is easily visible from your Village home doorsteps to the northeast and at this minute you can hear fire-fighting helicopters flying in the distance.

Here are two recently posted news links:

We will update you with additional information as it becomes available.


August 2016 Newsletter

Hi Everyone,

Over the last month we emphasized the importance of fire preparedness by posting online a request from the Orange County Fire Authority for Fire Watch Volunteers.
Since then, Southern California has endured at least two very, very serious forest fires. Fortunately we have not been directly affected but by no means should we be less vigilant.

Under these historic, extremely dry conditions, fire prevention should be a homeowner priority. As a community, we will be soon performing fire prevention actions in common areas that are spelled out in this month’s newsletter.

July 2016 Newsletter

Hi Everyone,

As another dry, hot summer bears down on us, fire preparedness is not the only concern we should be on the lookout for. Rattlesnakes are being sited in Southern California communities more and more. An article in this month’s newsletter brings this issue to light that we encourage everyone to read. You can also click here to find out more about rattlesnake awareness.
