HCSO Would Like to Remind Humboldt of Precautionary Evacuations
The following is a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:
“Humboldt County Sheriff Mike Downey wants to remind residents that the precautionary evacuation advisory for the approximately 10 residences in the Swayback Ridge area of the Mt Lassic Wilderness is still in effect. The Lassic area is located south of Dinsmore. This is an advisory only, due to the Lassic Fire burning approximately two miles south of the area under advisory. The Swayback and Lassic Fires have merged and are now the Lassic Fire. These fires are part of the Mad River Complex, now under the command of Type 1 Incident Management Team 5. For current fire information, see http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4436/.
There are no mandatory evacuation orders in effect in Humboldt County at this time. This is an advisory only, for “voluntary evacuations.”
