UPDATED even more evacuations ordered; 70 closed westbound out of Quincy

The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office sent out a mandatory evacuation order for the residents west of Chandler Road to the Greenville Wye and both sides of Highway 70. A new fire has ignited at 435 Butterfly Valley Road forcing the rapid evacuation call. This includes the areas of Keddie and Old Highway West.

Highway 70 is closed to westbound residents; a roadblock is being set up (possibly near Gansner Airport.)

The evacuation has been extended from the north side of Chandler Road West to Oakland Camp Road.

Shelter is at Springs of Hope Church on Bell Lane.
