Fawn Fire Destroys 155 Buildings in Shasta County
A new state map shows which buildings in Shasta County have been damaged or destroyed by the Fawn Fire so far.
Although the fire spread quickly during its first two days, growth has slowed recently. It’s more than 8,500 acres large. Crews have established containment lines around half of the fire’s perimeter.
Cal Fire officials say residents who are returning to their homes near the fire area need to remember that it’s still an active fire.
“Once you return to your home, look out for any smoldering or hotspots around the edge and perimeter of your home,” Clark says. “Also, be aware of any power lines and also crews that are working in the area.”
Clark says winds are difficult to predict and they can change at a moment’s notice, so people near the fire area need to be ready to evacuate any time.
