BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea held a media briefing to answer questions about the Camp Fire around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Monday looks sunny and dry after some patchy morning fog. The rest of the weeks some weak storms will move though bringing clouds and light showers at times.
