Attempt to repopulate Westwood delayed due to increased fire activity

With the Lake Almanor Basin being repopulated beginning today, what about Westwood?

The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office made preliminary plans in cooperation with the Cal Fire incident management team to repopulate Westwood as early as 3 p.m. today, but fire activity has increased near Hamilton Mountain and it has been determined that conditions are unsafe for repopulation of that area at this time.

The public will be updated as circumstances change.
