BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Ampla Health is offering free medical care to Camp Fire evacuees housed in shelters.

The company went to the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds to visit evacuees this past weekend offering free check-ups, pediatric care and flu shots. 

They're also delivering long-awaited prescriptions to evacuees who have not been able to get them. 

"Whether they are patients of Ampla Health or not, we are seeing everyone," said Rocio Valdez, director of communications for Ampla Health. "We're not turning anyone away. 

They are offering help to anyone, even if they misplaced important documents in the fire. 

"If anyone lost their identification or insurance cards our enrollment specialists can help," she said. 

Ampla Health plans to keep their mobile health units at the fairgrounds Monday through Friday of this week from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Clear skies have allowed for much cooler temperatures to start your Tuesday, but clouds will quickly increase through the day. Rain and snow will return to northern California this evening, and we'll get cooler on Wednesday. More rain and some high elevation snow will be ahead for the rest of this week and weekend. Models are keeping our region wet through at least the start of next week!
