IGO, Calif. – Action News Now reporter Jafet Serrato took a look at some of the damage after the Zogg Fire burned through Ono in Shasta County.
A chimney, rubble, and some bricks are what’s left of one home in Ono. But right next to it - one home is seen nearly untouched.
Other structures were not so lucky, like the Ono Grange store – now gone.
The Zogg Fire knocked down trees, blackened fields, and destroyed other homes.
It’s just some of the signs of devastation left behind.
But firefighters are ready to get to work.
"Our objective is going to be to fortify the lines and get some hand crews in and kind of connect the dots where the hand crews couldn't get into the steeper drainages," said CAL FIRE official, Jimmy Zanotelli.
Its a plan to protect communities still standing like Igo.
“As more resources start to funnel in of course we'll get those out on the fire lines and get some aggressive tactics," shared Zanotelli.
Tactics one Cottonwood man hopes works.
"Every year we have fires here it's not really uncommon,” shared Cottonwood resident, Nick Truett. “I think they're going to keep it maintained, keep it pushed off that way but I mean with this wind that we're having who knows."
Zanotelli told Action News Now the biggest challenge for firefighters is increased winds. CAL FIRE is planning to aggressively fight the flames with aircraft - weather permitting.
