UPDATE: Progress made on Lion Fire that prompted evacuation advisory for Taylorsville

UPDATE 8:30 p.m. Aug. 20: According to firefighters on the scene, there is now a dozer line around the fire and lots of water has been dropped on the Iron Fire today. The fire is located near China Grade on Mt. Hough. Water was taken from Crystal Lake to fight the fire. Kevin Goss, the chairman of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors, said 75 percent of the fire is now surrounded by water line hose and that there were two breaks on each side of the fire, with crews staffed there overnight.

The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office has issued an evacuation advisory notice earlier today for Taylorsville extending west on Arlington Road to Johnson Ranch Road and three miles south on Genesee from the intersection of Arlington and North Valley roads. That advisory remains in effect.
