Death Toll Rises to 42 on the Camp Fire [Maps]
As of last night, the fire had spread to 117,000 acres and was 30% contained. This morning, the fire is now 125,000 acres and still 30% contained.
Although there is no longer a Red Flag Warning, the fire continues to be volatile. Today is predicted to be mostly sunny with highs in the mid-sixties. The winds should be light today but could gust to 20 mph overnight. Expect very dry conditions today and no rain throughout the week
The fire has crossed a 300 foot span of Lake Oroville, according to Cal Fire. This shows that there is long range spotting that firefighters are having difficulty dealing with.
The north and the east were the most active areas yesterday with the fire continuing to push towards the tiny town of Stirling City. Firefighters have managed to push in a number of dozer lines and burn lines in critical areas including between the fire and Stirling City. They’ll be working to improve those and provide structure preparation throughout the area around the fire today.
