Butte County Evacuations Downgraded As Dixie Fire Burns Farther Into Lassen County

The Dixie Fire has burned more than 510,200 acres. Containment has improved to 30%. The southern perimeter is mostly secured. At least 600 homes are confirmed destroyed, along with hundreds of commercial and other structures. All Butte County evacuation orders, and some in Plumas County, have been reduced to warnings, but vast areas remain under mandatory evacuation. As the fire moves further into Lassen County, incident command has been moved to Susanville. 3 firefighters have been injured. There are more than 6,000 personnel working the Dixie Fire. It started in the Feather River Canyon July 13th, apparently from a PG&E equipment failure.
