Forest Fire Lassen County

I’m Ed Smith, a Susanville Personal Injury Attorney. We have just learned that CAL FIRE is reporting that their fire crews are busy at work battling a 100+ acre fire near Williard Creek Road, which is west of Susanville in Lassen County. It is being called the “Williard Fire.” The California Highway Patrol (CHP) described it as a forest fire.

Fire Reported Sunday Morning

The fire was called in at 11:19 a.m. to CHP dispatch. Residents in the area are posting on social media the fire as it burns. A big plume of white smoke could be seen from the roadway along Highway 36. At the time of this writing 15 hand crews, 35 engines, 3 dozers and numerous aircraft were working to fight the fire.

Multiple Agencies Responding

Agencies that have responded to the Willard Fire are Susan River Fire District, Susanville City Fire, CAL FIRE, Lake Forest Volunteers, CCC, Milford Fire District, Jamesville Fire District, US Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.

Heavy Winds Fueling the Forest Fire

Authorities said the fire is spotting due to heavy winds whipping through the area.

Mandatory Evacuations Underway

Mandatory evacuations have been placed into effect along areas of the Susan River.
