Dixie Fire cleanup – by the numbers

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors receives a progress report on what’s happening in Greenville and for Dixie Fire survivors during their weekly meetings. The following information was provided by County Administrator Gabriel Hydrick during the board’s last December meeting.


It was reported that 829 individuals registered with FEMA for a total of $3.49 million that is scheduled to be dispersed under the Individuals and Households Program. The sign-up period is now closed.

FEMA direct housing


FEMA currently has 28 fire survivor households approved for direct housing.

Three pads were leased for trailers with two trailers now installed, and two families “licensed in” to those trailers at the Evergreen RV Park just west of Quincy.

Thirty pads have been leased at Lassen West in Westwood — 23 for travel trailers (18 have been licensed) and seven for mobile home units.

A joint state (CalOES)/Plumas County emergency shelter has been established on Wolf Creek-Greenville Road for 14 trailers, which are now in place, with 11 trailers currently occupied by fire survivors.

Phase 2 structural debris clean-up progress

Due to inclement weather, most crew operations are suspended at this time.

To date, 479 hazard trees have been dropped and removed; 219 lots have structural debris cleanup completed; 202 lots have soil sampling completed and are now awaiting soil testing; 107 lots have completed and approved soil sampling, and eight lots returned to Plumas County.


Right of Entry

The time period to submit a right of entry has closed, but 933 ROEs were collected. Of those 850 are accepted as complete and uploaded into the CalOES database. Of those, 223 are hazard tree only.

There have been 96 alternate program submittals.

Staff are now working on the detailed process to release properties back to property owners following successful clean-up.
