The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office announced today, Oct. 9, that effective immediately, all evacuation orders and advisories for Plumas County related to the North Complex Fire have been lifted.
Investigations Sergeant Steve Peay said that favorable weather conditions have contributed heavily to the decision. “Low temperatures, high humidity and winds that didn’t materialize as expected, all helped,” he said.
This means that residents in the Bucks Lake and Feather River Canyon areas are free to return home with no advisories in place.
However, he stressed, that this does not apply to the forests. Both the Mt. Hough and Feather River Ranger districts still have restrictions in place.
The Sheriff’s Office issued a statement thanking residents and those affected by the evacuations for their patience and continued support during this incident.
“We would also like to thank the California Interagency Incident Management Team 4 for their hard work and dedication during this enduring incident along with all of our other cooperators; like, CHP – Quincy, U.S. Forest Service-Plumas National Forest, Caltrans District 2, Plumas County Public Works, Plumas County IT, Plumas County GIS, and everyone else,” the statement read.
