On December 3, 2020 Plumas National Forest officials announced that the North Complex Fire is 100% contained. The fires within the North Complex began by lightning on August 17, 2020 and burned 318,935 acres.

The fire closure remains in effect until conditions improve. The closure area follows (generally) the actual fire perimeter and affects all national forest land, roads, trails and campgrounds within the fire closure area. County roads and private land within the perimeter are not affected by the federal land closure. For more information about the closure, please check the forest website at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/plumas/alerts-notices

Within the closure area, falling trees (often falling without warning), smoldering stump holes, are some of the public safety hazards that exist within the fire perimeter. Longer term hazards include landslides and flash flooding caused by erosion or suppression activities not yet repaired. These hazards may lead to serious injury or death. Fire suppression repair will continue as conditions allow, mitigating these threats to public safety and resource values.

We thank everyone in the local communities and beyond for their past and continued support of the firefighters working on this incident. https://www.facebook.com/USFSPlumas
