Firefighters had a busy saturday as two fires burned in southern Butte County. The fires broke out right around the same time. One in Polermo and the other in Thermalito.
Homes were threatened in the Thermalito fire. Overall 4 acres burned destroying two outbuildings and damaging another. While no homes burned, nearby trees did. Residents were prepared to evacuate incase the fire spread. No injuries were reported.
The other fire was down the road on Ophir. That fire burned 5 acres and fortunately did not burn any homes.
