BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Workers have cleared more than 1 million tons of debris so far from last November's Camp Fire site in Northern California. About three-quarters of that was debris, soil and ash.
More than 150,000 tons of contaminated soil was also removed.
The rest of the materials cleared were concrete and metals, some of which is being recycled.
Much of the impacted area still lacks clean water. Residents have been relying on truckloads of bottled water delivered regularly.
