Some evacuation orders lifted in Northern California after Camp Fire

Sheriff’s officials lifted some evacuation orders in Northern California on Sunday in the wake of the destructive Camp Fire, which killed 88 people.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office said residents could return to communities in the areas of Magalia and Concow on Sunday, while the general public will be allowed entry beginning Monday afternoon.

Fire crews contained the Camp Fire last Sunday after the blaze burned for three weeks and destroyed nearly 14,000 homes, devastating the town of Paradise.

Authorities told returning residents that the impacted areas may have limited services and warned them not to use power generators. Authorities also strongly suggest that residents not live at destroyed properties until Butte County Environmental Health declares them clear of ash and debris.
