CA: BTU or Butte Lightning Complex

Posted on Categories Uncategorized

The Camp fire, part of the BTU complex east of Chico, CA near Paradise, continued to move slowly south on Wednesday. Strong down canyon winds were forecast for Wednesday night, prompting additional evacuations for Jarbo Gap, Yankee Hill and Big Bend.

This map, maintained by the Chico Enterprise Record newspaper, has a great deal of information, but we can’t vouch for it’s accuracy. But the CalFire web site is having problems due to very heavy visitation.

The size of the fire according to CalFire is 49,000 acres and it is 45% contained. Burning embers have been landing in Paradise and areas south of the fire during the day on Wednesday, according to our contact in the area.
