CITY OF SHASTA LAKE, Calif. - A miscommunication Friday from Shasta County authorities is being blamed for alerting the community of Shasta Lake that they were not under mandatory evacuations from the Carr Fire, only for Cal Fire to say moments later that they were.
According to our reporter Cecile Juliette, Action News Now received word from Cal Fire that the City of Shasta Lake was indeed under a mandatory evacuation after SHASCOM said they were not.
Cal Fire Shasta County has ordered the entire city to evacuate as well as all of Shasta Dam Boulevard, the Shasta Dam Visitor Center and Summit City.
