BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Monday morning, the Environmental Protection Agency continues its cleanup of areas the Camp Fire burned through.

Crews will move through Zone 8 and 14, which covers Pentz Road between Malibu Drive and Billie Road, and between Stearns and the West Branch of the Feather River.

Every house has dangerous materials in it, includes car batteries, cleaners, paint solvents, and more.

When a fire burns through, the heat can cause already dangerous materials to become unstable. So, expect to see crews out in those areas, well protected in the big white suits.

Even if your order's been lifted, you don't want to stay very long until these guys come through.

They ask that people be patient, this stage of cleanup will continue into next Summer.

The work is not going to cost you anything - it's funded by the EPA and the California DTSE.

By January, they'll also start on the removal of anything else that the fire has damaged, toxic or not.

The EPA says they have a list of about 15,000 homes to clean up.

They'll send everything they collect a nearby staging area before they dispose of it.
