SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency in Trinity County, Tehama County and Shasta County due to several fires burning in each county.

The Governor's Office said the Dixie Fire, Monument Fire and McFarland Fire have combined to burn over 100,000 acres in the three counties. 

On Saturday, the governor visited Greenville to see what the Dixie Fire did to the town.

The Governor’s Office said the state secured Fire Management assistance Grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help support the state in response to the River Fire, Dixie Fire and Lava Fire.

Other counties impacted by the Antelope Fire, River Fire, Dixie Fire, Fly Fire, Tamarack Fire, Lava Fire and Beckwourth Complex have received assistance from the state.
