On Sept. 21, Hume Lake reported the wildfires that scorched the area and wreaked havoc on just about everything in its path were at 70 percent containment. Crews began mopping up hot burned areas daily and the region, Hume Lake reported on Facebook, is slowly becoming safe again.

"Today, after over a month of evacuation, full time Hume Lake staff have been cleared to return home, although the surrounding area remains under evacuation," the Sept. 21 post said. "We now begin the long process of cleaning smoke and ash out of our buildings and homes. We continue to pray for rain, as well as rest for the staff and families that have been displaced."

For more information on closures, please call the official fire information line at: 559-549-4837.

In addition to this information, Hume Lake has canceled most of its events due to air quality safety. Those of you who were signed up, if you have not already been contacted, will receive a call giving you the option of a full refund.

The following upcoming events were canceled or moved:

Hume Lake Christian Camps has also set up a needs page...

"In addition to financial gifts, the ministry has been blessed over the years by “in-kind” gifts of equipment, vehicles and services. These gifts save the ministry thousands of dollars and often provide Hume with equipment or resources that it could not otherwise afford or obtain.

"The list below includes many items that will help advance the ministry of Hume Lake. Perhaps you have an item that is in good working order, but it is no longer being used. Or you are involved in a business that could support the ministry through one of these in-kind gift opportunities. You can also make a financial gift designated to the purchase of one of these items; please contact us for estimated pricing of the item(s) you are interested in funding.

"Please keep in mind that all in-kind gifts are subject to management’s review and acceptance, based on condition and suitability for ministry purposes."
