Evacuation Orders Ease as Dixie Fire Containment Grows in Plumas County, California

Some evacuation orders and warnings were eased on August 25, as the 735,064-acre Dixie Fire was 45 percent contained across multiple northern California counties, according to Plumas National Forest.

More than 5,000 personnel continued to battle the fire, according to InciWeb, as efforts were concentrated in Genesee Valley’s Taylorsville area throughout Tuesday, Plumas National Forest said.
