Several Wildfires Now Burning In California, As Wildfire Season Heats Up

Several wildfires are currently burning in California, and that includes a massive wildfire in the Plumas National Forest. The Walker Fire has grown to more than 68 square miles in size and was only seven percent contained as of Monday.

The job of fighting the fire has been made more difficult by shifting winds.

Mandatory evacuation notices have been issued for people living in fairly rural parts in the forest, but no larger communities are threatened at the moment.

To the north in Tehama County, the lightning-caused Red Bank Fire is now 50 percent contained, but not before destroying two structures and burning through almost 14 square miles.

All mandatory evacuations and evacuation warnings for the Red Bank Fire have been lifted.
