Homes destroyed by Mill Fire and Mountain Fire in Siskiyou County



More than 100 buildings in and near Weed were destroyed by the Mill Fire, a newly released map shows.

The map below, from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, shows the status of dozens of homes and outbuildings in the area of the 4,000-acre wildfire that started Friday, Sept. 2. (Click the “accept terms” line on the opening graphic to see the full interactive map.)

Red icons indicate destroyed buildings. Orange, yellow and green are lesser damage, and black indicates no damage.

The first round of assessment shows about 80 buildings — most of them single-family residences — were destroyed in Weed and about three dozen north of the city, most in the community of Lake Shastina.

The map also shows a few icons for the Mountain Fire. It has been burning more actively to the west of Weed, and Cal Fire has not been able to assess most of that territory yet.

More information on the post-fire recovery can be found at the Facebook page of Siskiyou County’s Office of Emergency Services.
