PLUMAS COUNTY, Calif. - The Dixie Fire is burning not far from the same area devastated by the Camp Fire in 2018.
The fire is prompting evacuation warnings.
Flames and smoke can be seen burning in the Feather River Canyon near Highway 70 in the area of the Plumas and Butte County line.
CAL FIRE crews were on the scene Wednesday battling the flames by helicopter.
“This fire is completely in Plumas County, following the border of Butte County but we are the jurisdiction responsible for attacking the fire,” CAL FIRE Captain, John Gaddie said.
People who live in the area said the fire has them concerned.
“It makes me nervous, the wind, and it’s so dry, you never know what could happen,” Joyce Moke, who lives about 20 miles from where the fire is burning said.
"I'm very concerned, we've had winds almost everyday and that is unusual for this time of year and the high temperatures, and being in the canyon, it's difficult to fight fires in the canyon," Terry Henson, who lives in Plumas County said.
“It’s moving toward the high lakes, so people in Concow, Magalia and Paradise who are little bit on edge from 2018, the fire is moving away from them,” Captain Gaddie added.
CAL FIRE said that it is bringing in an enormous amount of resources to fight the fire.
They said they have several contingency lines that were built from last year’s North Complex Fire and the Camp Fire which they are utilizing to help contain the fire.
The fire is currently at 2,200 acres with 0% containment.
CAL FIRE said the cause is still under investigation.
