An Estimated 2,000 Structures Destroyed By 70,000 Acres Camp Fire So Far

Paradise, CA...Strong NE winds pushed the fire to the South and Southwest overnight. The NE winds will continue through the morning and decrease in strength into the afternoon. The fire will continue to burn in drainages to North and Northeast . The fire continues to burn to the Northwest into Magalia and toward Stirling City. Extremely dry fuels and heavy fuel loads in combination with low relative humidity will continue to produce active fire behavior and impede control efforts. The fire burned through the Town of Paradise and Concow Thursday, these areas will continue to experience active burning throughout the day. Overnight the fire burned to the Southwest toward the City of Chico and Butte Creek Canyon and South towards Highway 99 and 149. The fire has crossed Highway 70 near Pulga and will continue to burn to the East and Southeast toward Yankee Hill.

was listening to the scanner on this fire and they are using the dc10's and the 747 tankers to build double wide retardant lines in hope of stopping this fire's forward progress in the hottest areas.

pray for rain!!.

        It wouldn't be causing this much trouble if someone puts out the fire.

                  Funny how only a couple of days after the Democrats are elected into power and the state becomes a flaming Sodom and Gomorrah.

          Tree Huggers made it so there is so much fuel we can't put it out. Blame the left. Their policies killed these people and destroyed this town. Policy devoid of common sense leads to stuff like this
