BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Camp Fire debris cleanup had temporarily been stalled by a species of endangered frogs living in the burn region. 

The properties with the debris are located 100 feet from the water.

The California Office of Emergency Service says that it is working with Cal Recycle and the Department of Fish and Wildlife to get waivers approved so they can proceed to clean up the debris within environmental guidelines. 

That approval will come from the California Natural Resource Agency and the California Environmental Protection Agency. 

Cal OES officials say this approval process has not significantly delayed debris removal.
