BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Neighbors near the Centerville Road area, between Chico and Magalia, are sharing concern over lack of road repairs on Centerville Road.

Many neighbors are worried about a lack of escape route in case of a fire or flood in the area. 

A section of the road washed away in 2016 and has still not been repaired. 

The washed-outstretch is about one mile from the intersection of Honey Run Road and Centerville Road. 

"If there is a fire there is no other way that we can get out, there is no way we can evacuate except right here," said Robert Catallano, a resident in the area. "So, if this doesn't get fixed before the fire season we are going to have a lot of nervous people up here." 

Catallano said he was told that the road would be fixed last summer, but there has since been no word on repairs.

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
