Progress made on Dodge Fire

Friday, Aug. 7 — Crews are currently gaining containment on the northwest flank of the Dodge Fire burning 17 miles northeast of Ravendale.

Due to difficult terrain, crews and resources are having trouble accessing the southern flank of the fire. Dozers were able to do significant work along the west flank of the fire. Helicopters were able to be utilized during the operational period. Spot fires in the northeast and southwest portion of the fire hampered suppression efforts.

The fire is 30-percent contained with full containment expected Tuesday, Aug. 11.

    To help fill the void, the Lassen County Standards for Indigent Medical Care and Aid has been established for those who may experience high, unanticipated medical bills.
    According to Melody Brawley, director of health and social services, the program is not health insurance and there is a residual number of people who might fall into the program.
