Per the Chico Enterprise Record: “It’s bad,” said Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea. “We’re trying to get as many people out as quickly as possible and save as many lives as we can.” The fire started about 6:30 a.m. today at Camp Creek Road near Pulga and swept west toward Paradise. It is at 5,000 acres with 0 percent containment, Cal Fire public information officer Rick Carhart said. Firefighters are expecting sustained winds up to 30-35 mph on the fire. The fire was reported burning in town on the Skyway, as well as Pentz Road and Bille Road. Information was sparse, but witnesses and reporters on the ground described a chaotic scene as people tried to leave town. Structures were reported burning and, according to scanner traffic, two burn victims were flown to Chico. A pregnant woman stuck in traffic went into labor. After staged evacuations started in the fire area near the West Branch Feather River canyon early in the morning, Honea said at 11 a.m. that the entire town was under an evacuation order... From monitoring Twitter and Facebook, it is sad. You see a tweets like this: Though we're 80+ miles away from the fire as the crow flies, Mendocino County to the coast and beyond is deep in smoke. Our Sheriff had to put out a notice assuring people that is wasn't from a fire here. We do have a wildfire going in the northeast forest part of the county along the Eel River and resources are limited as CalFire tries to save Paradise.
