The Trinity County Sheriff's Office announced that all evacuations ordered as result of the Oregon Fire near Weaverville have been lifted.

The fire broke out Sunday afternoon near Highway 299, destroyed at least one structure and forced the evacuation of about 200 homes. Officials say more than 1 square mile, or 650 acres burned in the blaze. Mandatory evacuations were issued Sunday evening and they were downgraded to advisory evacuations a little after 8 a.m. Monday.

The evacuation center set up at Weaverville First Baptist Church has been closed.
