Besides the road closures currently in effect, was Phantom Spires affected by Freds fire?

El Dorado National forest page has a JPEG image ( Incident Information )on their site, but I can't deciher the image.

It looks like the area may have been burned out, but I can't tell.

Does anyone have any first hand information?

Thanks for the info. Since the area has burned, it may be fragile for quite some time. It's too bad. I was hoping to get some climbing in at Phantom Spires this month.
