The Chico City Council is set to confirm the city's new fire chief this week.

Steven Standridge comes from south metro fire rescue in Colorado where he served as emergency manager and special operations bureau chief.

He has a doctorate degree in fire and emergency management from Oklahoma State University.

We had beautiful weather around northern California on Friday with sunshine and more warmth. Saturday will also be fantastic, so get out and enjoy it! A welcome change to our very dry weather pattern is coming soon.
