Humboldt County Sheriff Mike Downey has issued a precautionary evacuation advisory for the approximately 10 residences in the Swayback Ridge area of the Mt Lassic Wilderness. 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.”
Mike Downey, Sheriff
