South Fork Payette Fires

I was planning on running the South Fork Canyon this week. I just noticed the fires in that area. Does anyone know if the river or the road is closed? Thanks

Just ran the Canyon yesterday.
It was fine-- no closures (except 21 as was mentioned), a little smokey in the morning, clearing in the afternoon.
