A meeting to discuss the Chips Fire was held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, at Lake Almanor West Community Park.
“Chips Fire has gotten a lot of attention. It was the first fire to take off and is certainly not the last. It looks like it is going to be a very challenging year for us,” said Lawrence Crabtree, Deputy Plumas National Forest Supervisor.
