Although it hasn’t happened yet, it is inevitable that you’ll see that headline soon. The town of Paradise has given 14,000 people immediate evacuation notices. On a map, that’s almost all of the east side of that town.
The Chico Enterprise Record (nearby newspaper in Chico CA) has a great map of the fire and evacuation areas here . There’s a great potential for damage if the fire gets into the ‘green’ (evacuation) areas.
And the weather is not helping. There is so much smoke that the fire retardant-dropping planes and water-dropping helicopters can’t fly.
