Sheriff’s office reduces evacuation orders for some areas

The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office reduced some evacuation orders to warnings Wednesday, but residents are asked to pay attention to changing conditions.

Citizens of Milford, Doyle, and Herlong are asked to remain vigilant and watch for changing fire conditions.  Spot fires along the ridgeline coupled with high winds can cause fire activity to escalate quickly, especially in those areas.  It is imperative that you remain alert and ready to evacuate if that occurs.

The Mandatory Evacuation Order remains in place for the dirt portion of Doyle Grade where the pavement ends approximately 3.4 miles south of US 395.  There will be a road block at that point and a heavy law enforcement presence will remain in the area.


Evacuation Orders have been reduced to an Evacuation Warning for Doyle Proper west of US 395 from the intersection of County Road A26 and US 395 south to Constantia Rd.but not including the dirt portion of Doyle Grade.


Evacuation Warnings remain in effect for the following areas:


  • Doyle east of US 395 including Doyle Loop and all roads connecting to Doyle Loop and Hackstaff Road to Laver Crossing is now under evacuation warning including the town of Herlong south to the Lassen/Sierra County line.



The Lassen County Planning Department is now able to provide property owners with information regarding property loss.  You can access information by calling (530)251-8269.  Thank you for your patience while assessment crews complete their work.

Be aware that changing conditions in fire activity may cause this area to escalate to an Evacuation Order at any time. Be aware that traffic interruptions may exist due to emergency personnel working in the area. Drive with your lights on and yield to emergency personnel.
