Little Valley evacuations lifted, dry conditions fueled fire

Tuesday, Aug. 5 — A fire line has been held on the Bald Fire and evacuations for Little Valley residents have been lifted.

According to Eric Ewing, office of emergency services chief, the lightning-caused fire started July 30 in Shasta County and then burned into Lassen County. It is just under 40,000 acres.

“It progressed rapidly toward the east and the northeast through that time period,” Ewing said.

He explained the progression of the wind is to blow northeast, which it did for one day but Ewing said the wind then blew south moving the fire closer to Little Valley. Evacuations remained in place through early afternoon Tuesday, Aug. 5 due to one unchecked piece that hadn’t been able to have a line hold on it.

Don’t miss out on Doyle Days

Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014 — If you’re looking for a little taste of some good old Americana and a glimpse of the way things used to be in rural towns across this great land, a visit to Doyle, a quiet town just a stone’s throw off Highway 395, is like taking a long step back in time.

Yep, the old, historic part of Doyle remains from the days when the then two-lane highway between Susanville and Reno, Nevada ran right through the middle of town. That nostalgic part of Doyle, including the century old Winje Hotel, explodes back into life each August with the Doyle Days Celebration. Proceeds from the event benefit community programs, and residents share their small-town pride with all who attend the annual event.

Conserve water during drought

Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014 — While the drought is not as noticeable locally, organizations are preparing to conserve water in various ways.

According to Lassen County Public Works Director Larry Millar, Lassen County has not seen many examples of the drought that is threatening California, but the State Water Board still issued a press release urging residents to limit the amount of water used outdoors.

According to the press release, an emergency regulation urging others to increase water conservation practices went into effect Tuesday, July 29.
