Wildfire burns through almost half of Lassen Volcanic NP

The massive Dixie Fire has burned through nearly half of Lassen Volcanic National Park on its extraordinary monthlong rampage, federal officials said Monday, leaving historical cabins and an iconic lookout tower in ruins.

The park, an area of old volcanoes and bubbling hot springs in California’s remote north, was hit by the blaze Aug. 5. Flames have since moved from the park’s southern edge east of Redding to its interior, pushing into such popular spots as Juniper Lake, Warner Valley and Summit Lake.
