BECKWOURTH COMPLEX FIRE
EVACUATION STATUS UPDATE
There has been no change in the status of evacuation orders or warnings overnight. We are asking the citizens of Milford, Doyle, and Herlong to remain vigilant and watch for changing fire conditions. Spot fires along the ridgeline coupled with high winds can cause fire activity to escalate quickly, especially in those areas. It is imperative that you remain alert and ready to evacuate if that occurs. We appreciate your patience and will continue to notify you as changes occur.
A Mandatory Evacuation Order is still in effect for:
• Doyle Proper west of US 395 from the intersection of County Road A26 and US 395 south to Constantia Rd. but not including Constantia Rd. is still under mandatory evacuation order.
Evacuation Warnings remain in effect for the following areas:
• Doyle east of US 395 including Doyle Loop and all roads connecting to Doyle Loop and Hackstaff Road to Laver Crossing is now under evacuation warning including the town of Herlong south to the Lassen/Sierra County line.
• West of US 395 from the north end of Constantia Rd. south to the Lassen/Sierra County line and from the intersection of A26 north to Milford Grade is now under Evacuation Warning.
The Lassen County Planning Department is now able to provide property owners with information regarding property loss. You can access information by calling (530)251-8269. Thank you for your patience while assessment crews complete their work.
Be aware that changing conditions in fire activity may cause this area to escalate to an Evacuation Order at any time. Be aware that traffic interruptions may exist due to emergency personnel working in the area. Drive with your lights on and yield to emergency personnel.
