Event

The so-called Camp Fire wildfire continues to burn in northern California's Butte county as of Sunday, November 18. The fire, which initially broke out on November 8, has burned some 60,200 hectares (149,000 acres) and is 60 percent contained as of Sunday morning (local time). According to local officials, the fire is expected to be fully contained by November 30.

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning through 16:00 on November 18, due to critical weather and dry conditions that could contribute to wildfire activity. Butte county officials have asked evacuees in Chico to relocate to Gridley due to rains forecast through Friday, November 23. Meteorologists have indicated the forecast rains may aid containment efforts and reduce wildfire risks; however, these conditions could contribute to unhealthy air quality in Northern California.

At least 76 people have been killed and more than 1200 others are missing. More than 12,000 structures have been damaged or destroyed and another 15,500 are threatened. Mandatory evacuation orders remain in effect in various areas, including Paradise, Magalia, Butte Creek Canyon, Pulga, Concow, and Butte Valley. A full map of evacuation zones can be found here. A number of roads in the vicinity of the fire have been closed.

Context

The Camp Fire is the most destructive and deadliest wildfire in the state’s history.
