EAST ZONE UPDATE

Safety Concerns

Drivers traveling on roads in active work zones should slow down to reduce the risk of colliding with equipment or firefighters. Speeding on roads where firefighters are active slows or stops work.

Yesterday

Crews completed suppression repair in the Keddie Ranch area and continued repair in Round Valley, Indian Valley, Grizzly Ridge, Antelope Lake and other areas. Near Taylorsville, crews have several projects grading roads and chipping debris. Firefighters installed hose, pumps and sprinklers along a one-third-mile-long chip pile. The Hazard Tree Group finished felling trees on China Grade Road and will be consolidating and decking logs for removal.

Today

Though crews have made significant progress repairing areas affected by fire suppression activity, much work remains to be done across the large fire area. Crews will continue to mop up the few remaining hotspots, mitigate hazard trees, process debris, backhaul unneeded equipment and work on suppression repair in Round Valley, Taylorsville, Grizzly Ridge, Milford spot, Last Chance Roads and other areas. The Hazard Tree Group will continue to work on China Grade Road and the road to the Mt. Hough lookout. Firefighters will respond to any service calls received; however, all visible smoke is well within the fire perimeter, and the smoldering heat sources do not pose a threat to containment lines. Two helicopters are available if needed.
 

To report smoke, call Plumas County Sheriff Dispatch (non-emergency) - 530-283-6300 

Weather

Today will be cool and very windy. Temperatures may reach the low 50s. Sustained 20 mph winds from the northeast are expected, with gusts up to 40 mph. Due to low humidity and gusty winds, a Red Flag Warning is in effect through 7 p.m. Tuesday for the western portion of the Dixie Fire area, including Quincy. Wednesday brings the start of a slow warming trend.

Forest Closure

A closure order remains in effect for some areas of the Plumas National Forest. For more information, please visit https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/7690/66457 or our interactive forest closure map at https://arcg.is/1re8my0.
