Plumas National Forest officials have sharply reduced the closure area for the North Complex Fire (Claremont/Bear fires). The new closure now follows (generally) the actual fire perimeter and affects all national forest land, roads and trails within the fire closure area.
Persons exempt from the fire closure order include: 1) any Federal, State or local officer, or member of an organized rescue or fire fighting force in the performance of an official duty; 2) persons with Forest Service Permit No. FS-7700-48 (Permit for Use of Roads, Trails, or Areas Restricted by Regulation or Order), specifically exempting them from this Order; 3) owners or lessees of land in the Claremont-Bear Fire Closure Area, to the extent necessary to access their land; and, 4) Persons with a permit from the Forest Service specifically authorizing the otherwise prohibited acts or omission.
