REDDING, Calif. - Residents in areas affected by the Carr Fire are beginning to return to their homes Sunday as more evacuation orders are being lifted.
The areas of Iron Mountian and Rock Creek Roads have been re-opened to residents only Sunday.
This now means all areas within the city limits of Redding have been reopened to residents including all areas where homes are destroyed.
One resident spoke to Action News Now and tells us how hard it is to see her home destroyed.
“Play hard and it's really hard because I’m very grateful I got out my kids because the flames were just there I am but coming back and I know people say stuff but it's memories,” said Zita Biehle, a homeowner in Keswick Estates.
The Carr Fire has now ripped through more than 154,000 acres and is still at the same containment of 41 percent.
