California burns (again)

Thousands of people were ordered to evacuate several Sierra foothills towns near Chico on Thursday as a wildfire raged out of control, growing rapidly to more than 5,000 acres.

The blaze, dubbed the Camp Fire, started in the area of Camp Creek Road and Pulga Road near Highway 70 in the Feather River Canyon, said officials with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire.

    Reports of possible Burn victims on South Libby, air ambulances requested.
    People are abandoning their vehicles on Wagstaff and Skyway to flee on foot. Firefighters are evacuating as many as possible.

      California got hammered this year. Everybody thinks that because the fires were so bad this year, those same areas are safe for the next few years. While that may be true in most other parts of the country or in the woods, that shit doesn’t apply to grasslands or scrub. It grows back the next year, dries out during the summer and burns in the fall.

      They’ve now blocked both northbound lanes of Hwy 99 from Hwy 149 to the Skyway up into Paradise so they can use ’em for southbound traffic exiting town. Probably have to wait a day or two to see in there’s anything left of the town. Smoke plume like you wouldn’t believe. Ash comin’ down in Oroville. This is some bad shit.

        To use the same logic the libs used in 2017 when texas got hit.

        This is gods way of punishing california for voting democrat.

          He’s picking on the wrong spot in California. Any County North Of Sac County goes conservative. Including Butte County. Even the Mexicans are conservative.

    That is actually a ‘red’ part of CA.

    0600 PST Thursday- The Camp Fire starts.
    1200 PST Friday- Acting Governor Gavin Newsom asks President Trump, whom he has vowed to fight with every fiber of his being, for federal money.

    That didn’t take long, did it?
