Plumas National Forest closure order - updated Sept. 18, 2021

Dixie Fire (CA) Wildfire
Closures – 9/18/2021

The Plumas National Forest Beckwourth and Mt. Hough Ranger Districts are issuing a revised Forest Order impacting the Beckwourth Complex & Dixie Fire Area, Road, Trail, and Recreation Site Closures. The closure order reflects potentially dangerous areas within the fires’ perimeters. Refer to Exhibit A (text) and B (map) which detail areas affected. This order will go into effect September 19, 2021.

While the new closure excludes areas previously restricted for access, forest visitors should exercise caution and good judgement in any area within the fire perimeter. Hazards could include weakened trees, downed limbs, rolling rocks, ash pits, and unstable soils. Smoldering large woody debris may still contain heat and will likely continue to burn for an extended period of time. Please report any heat source close to the fire’s perimeter.
