This is a forested area with no residences, but, due to potential for fire activity should not be occupied by the public.

Due to the current fire activity in the area north of Butte Lake, the Incident Management Team recommended that the communities in and around the Hat Creek Rim be made aware of the situation.  We want the public to be prepared to leave if fire conditions change.  At this time, the Dixie Fire is not progressing towards the community of Old Station.

Out of an abundance of caution, the Sheriff’s Office is issuing an evacuation WARNING for:

  • All residents and campers in Old Station and Hat Creek along both sides of Highway 44 from Big Pines Road north to Brains Way.

Residents under the warning should be prepared to leave the area in case of increased fire activity. This is the time to prepare valuable items such as important documents, prescription drugs and phone chargers, and to sign up for CodeRED alerts if you are not already enrolled https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-US/BFBDCA5E730B.

Be alert! Situations can change rapidly amid critical fire conditions.
