Next Monday, the Dixie Fire will reach its 60th continuous day of burning. According to Cal Fire’s website, the fire is 59% contained but will likely continue to burn through Plumas and neighboring counties in the coming week.
Residents from nearby Greenville are returning to survey the fire damage caused to their community. Unfortunately this mainly means that these people are coming back to find nothing but the ash and debris left in the fire’s wake[source].
Worse still, a first responder died sometime on the 4th of September during fire fighting efforts[source. This first responder was the first fatality of its kind for the Dixie Fire.
The for the time being, the fire will continue to burn through the state, forcing some communities to evacuate and others to live in darkness[source].
