Today, the Dixie Fire grew to 807,400 acres, and red flag warnings continue throughout the northern Sierra Nevada and the southern Cascades. [source] Additionally, Plumas is now under an official fire evacuation order. More information on that is here.
This morning, the fire was only 48% contained, and the blaze has now destroyed at least 1277 structures. There is 3000 personnel fighting the fire as we speak, which is a decrease earlier in the month [source]. If you’ve received an evacuation order, please abide by it.
“While we understand evacuated residents are understandably eager to get back to their homes and properties, the Dixie Fire is still active, and the public must remain out of Mandatory Evacuation Order zones until the orders are downgraded to warnings or lifted. There are also several health and safety hazards in affected areas that must be mitigated prior to reentry. Please do not attempt to enter restricted areas until evacuation orders are lifted. You can determine your zone and see evacuation status by entering your address on the evacuation map located at: community.zonehaven.com” – Cal Fire [source].
