Dixie Fire West Zone –
The incident is being managed under a Unified Command with National Incident Management Organization
(NIMO) Team 1 integrated with California Interagency Management Team 14, and CAL FIRE.
The Lassen National Forest Dixie Fire Closure Order is in effect until November 30, 2021 to provide safety for
our firefighters and the public.
• Firefighters took advantage of the recent moisture to increase containment to 90%. The decrease in
acreage from yesterday is a result of more accurate mapping.
• Today’s northeast winds will quickly dry the air following the recent rainfall. Firefighters will monitor
fire activity in unburned areas within the containment line, including islands of vegetation east of Raker
and West Prospect peaks.
• The warmer temperatures and drying vegetation will make smoke more visible. Smoke will be seen in
fire areas along highways and roadways. Stopping along the roadway is prohibited due to hazards.
• Patrol and mop-up efforts are ongoing along the western fire perimeter.
• Fire suppression repair is continuing north of the recently reopened Bogard Rest Area. Suppression
repair includes removing hazard trees and repairing the hand and dozer fire lines, staging areas, and
safety zones in order to minimize soil erosion.
• The public is advised to be cautious along local roadways as fire traffic will be present conducting
patrols and suppression repair.
Information regarding Evacuation Orders and Evacuation Warnings are posted on the Sheriff’s Office Website,
Facebook, and Twitter for your respective community.
