Fire crews worked through the night and were able to get the Oregon Fire 25 percent contained, and as a result all mandatory evacuations have been changed to advisory evacuations
The Trinity County Sheriff's Office had issued mandatory evacuations for the following Weaverville areas:
Leslie Lane, Weaver Bally Rd, Weaver Bally Estates, Fisher Price Lane, Ridge Rd, Easter Avenue, Barbara Avenue, Garden Gulch, Browns Ranch Rd, Squires Lane, East Weaver Creek Rd, Airport Rd, Brooks Lane, Squires Lane and Kelso St, Mulligan St, Willow Ave, Manzanita St, Reservoir Rd, Town Reservoir Rd, Tom Bell Rd, Angel Hill Rd, Brashaw Rd, Benoist Ln.
The evacuation center at Weaverville First Baptist Church will remain open and fire officials say daylight brings increased risks as gusty winds and dry conditions return.
The fire destroyed one structure, likely a barn or a large outbuilding and forced the evacuation about 200 homes.
