BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Even on Thanksgiving, repair crews and emergency personnel did not take a break working on areas affected by the Camp Fire.

In addition to those crews, over 200 law enforcement officers were also on duty patrolling the streets.

"Our searchers and law enforcement officers are committed to this effort," Honea said.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
