On Thursday, August 5, 2021, the remaining areas of Indian valley were placed under a Mandatory
Evacuation Order: including the northeast portion of the valley and Taylorsville. Later in the afternoon
the fire made a wind driven run into the community of Canyon Dam and caused major structural
damage. We do not currently have an estimate on structures damaged in Canyon Dam; however, initial
assessment shows it will be much of the small Plumas County town.
As of this morning we have four individuals who are unaccounted for. The Investigations Unit is
actively working to contact these people and we will report updates as time allows.
We still have no reports of any public injuries or casualties from the Dixie Fire.
Currently, approximately 42% of Plumas County residents are under an Evacuation Order.
Cal Fire has already begun damage assessment in the areas most recently damaged; however, there are
still several areas too dangerous to access at this time. Plumas County Recovery Information link:
