Effective as of 11 a.m. this morning, Aug. 6, the Plumas County Sheriff has lifted the mandatory evacuation order for Meadow Valley and reduced it to a warning.
Residents may return home; however, they need to beware that fire personnel are still in the area. They are also asked to remember that there is still active fire in the area and hotspots are expected. They are instructed not to call 911 unless there is an imminent threat to their property.
Be vigilant should conditions change.
Please remember there is still a forest closure in effect for areas around Meadow Valley MAP:
Be vigilant to weather and wind conditions and take any future orders seriously, should they change.
While returning home and while fire personnel remain in the area use caution, reduce your speed, drive with your headlights on and yield to emergency personnel.
Just because the flames are out doesn’t mean the danger is over. Damaged trees/terrain and flash flooding are just some of the dangers that exist after a wildfire. DO NOT put yourself or your loved ones in danger by exploring!
