The scenic highway through Lassen Volcanic National Park is reported to have been temporarily closed as a storm moves across the mountains and snowfall accumulates in the higher elevations. Hazardous and icy road conditions require this temporary closure of the highway. Park road crews will work to remove the expected 10 to 20 inches of snow by Friday afternoon which will allow visitors to drive the highway this weekend.

Two of the fires were suppressed and one other fire went out on its own. Park staff decided to manage the remaining two fires: the Peak Fire and the Summit Fire. The Peak Fire is located at 8,330 feet in elevation on the northwest slope of Lassen Peak. Surrounded by rock and snow, it has little potential for growth.
