Those sheltering at LHS relocated to Lassen College

With more space at the Lassen Community College shelter and the school year starting for Lassen High School, Dixie Fires evacuees were relocated from LHS this week.

“Due to the increase in capacity at Lassen Community College and the upcoming school year, we have closed shelter operations at Lassen High School. All clients at Lassen High School have been relocated to Lassen Community College,” read a statement from Lassen County Public Health.

“Lassen County would like to thank Lassen High School for their generosity and hospitality during this time.”

The shelter at Lassen Community College will continue to remain open during the mandatory evacuation orders from the Dixie Fire.

More information will be released as it becomes available.

Last week, the county reported it was housing just under 300 Dixie Fire evacuees in the two shelters; however, the wildfire prompted the evacuation of thousands of Plumas and Lassen County residents.
