BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Crews with FEMA arrived in the Camp Fire burn scar on Monday after winter weather conditions temporarily put operations on hold.

The operations resumed after a two and a half week hiatus. 

Vick Singh, a Camp Fire survivor, said FEMA called him Sunday letting him know they would be back in the area on Monday. 

They had already started weeks ago but had to stop because rain can create debris flows and danger for work crews. 

"I was happy that they were going to clean my property so I can clean my house and live in my dream house," Singh said. 

A spokesperson for Cal OES said they don't anticipate having to stop for rain this week because it's not expected to be as heavy as the last few weeks. 

Officials will reassess the situation mid-week.
