FORESTHILL, CA - No new evacuees moved into the Foresthill Veterans Memorial Hall Thursday, but folks wanting to know the latest news packed a standing room only community meeting.

The next community meeting will be held Friday, at 9:00am

The evacuation center at the Foresthill Veterans Memorial Hall at 24601 Harrison Road in Foresthill was designated a shelter for residents displaced by the Robbers Fire on Wednesday.

At 7:45 p.m., about 25 people were staying at the Foresthill shelter. It is being operated by the American Red Cross with support from the Placer County Health and Human Services Department, the County of Placer PIO Incident team said.

A decision was made to close the evacuation center at the Colfax Veterans Memorial Hall in Colfax because no one was staying there Wednesday evening.
