Camp Fire, Butte County

  • Paradise
  • 109,000 acres
  • 25% contained
  • 23 fatalities
  • 6,713 structures destroyed, making it the most destructive fire in California History

Woolsey fire, Ventura County

  • South of Simi Valley
  • 83,275 acres
  • 10% contained
  • Two fatalities
  • Unknown structure loss, last estimated at 15o but expected to grow

  • 70% contained
  • No fatalities
  • Two structures destroyed
  • Repopulation began Saturday night but evacuations are still in effect

More than 8,000 firefighters from across the state are stationed at the fires. Decreased wind allowed them to reinforce containment lines Saturday night but many are preparing for warm and dry conditions and Santa Ana winds to add to increased fire danger.
