Crews On The Dixie Fire Face Spot Fires In The Lassen Park Area

The Dixie Fire has burned 922,200 acres, and it’s 59% contained. Most of the perimeter was quiet Tuesday. Spotting has continued to be an issue in Lassen National Park, as well as in the southeastern parts of the fire zone. The fight remains aggressive in the Hat Creek Drainage. Crews are still battling to hold the fire back from Janesville and Milford. The main body of the fire is still raging in Horton Ridge, Dixie Valley and Diamond Mountain along the Highway 395 corridor. Crews are in patrol status along Highways 32, 36 and 89. Fire also remains seated south of Taylorsville in the Devils Punchbowl. A firefighter on the Dixie Fire died of an illness last Thursday. 3 others have been injured. Well over 700 homes are confirmed destroyed, along with hundreds of commercial and other structures. The Dixie Fire started in the Feather River Canyon July 13th, apparently from a PG&E equipment failure.
