Event

California state and local authorities announced full containment of Butte county's so-called Camp Fire, the state's deadliest wildfire in history. Firefighters established a perimeter around the 62,0000-hectare (153,000-acre) burned terrain, where areas may still be burning. Authorities are continuing search operations and many areas remain under mandatory evacuation orders, resulting in thousands of displaced persons. Road closures also remain in effect. Due to the burning of vegetation, the area has a high risk of mudslides and debris flows in the event of rain.

Context

The Camp Fire has been the most destructive and deadliest in the state’s history. The fire started on November 8 near Camp Creek Road and rapidly spread, burning the town of Paradise. At least 85 people died due to the fire and around 200 others remain missing.

Advice

Individuals in the area are advised to adhere to instructions issued by local authorities (e.g. evacuation notices, road closures), monitor the situation and local weather reports, and anticipate transportation disruptions and infrastructure damage. Be advised that heavy rain may result in mudslides and debris flows and areas downhill from burn scars should be avoided in the event of rain.
