Update: Crews Fighting Dixie Fire Brace For Red Flag Conditions

The Dixie Fire grew 30,000 acres overnight, now 807,400 acres and 48% contained. Red Flag conditions continue through Tuesday. The Dixie is still very active on multiple fronts, including inside Lassen Park on the west side and Mount Ingalls on the east side. Highway 44 is closed at the junction with Highway 89 at Old Station. Lassen County has issued a new evacuation order for north of Highway 44 to Crater Lake Campground. Contingency lines are being built in many areas of concern where the fire has doubled back on itself. Well over 700 homes are confirmed destroyed, along with hundreds of commercial and other structures. Almost 14,000 remain threatened. 3 firefighters have been injured. The Dixie Fire started in the Feather River Canyon July 13th, apparently from a PG&E equipment failure.
