BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Evacuation orders were lifted for residents living in a portion of Stilson Canyon Road in eastern Chico and a lot of the homes are still intact after the Camp Fire exploded Nov. 8.


The Butte County Sheriff’s Office Sunday said a portion of the road from Humboldt Road to Lazy S Lane were lifted, but others are left waiting to go back home.


Action News Now spoke to a man named Ken Kruger whose parents were told to leave as flames were approaching their home the night the fire broke out.


Kruger works at Cal Trans District 3 and was notified by his parents that they had to leave the home they’ve had since 1998.


Both Kruger’s parents left but had to leave their cat behind, because she could not be found at the time.


But 10 days after the evacuation order was set, they got to go back to an intact home with nothing damaged, and their cat still alive.
“It’s such an amazing relief to have a place to come back. And no amount of thanks and praise can ever be extended enough to the brave firefighters and everyone first responders,” Kruger said.


Kruger added that authorities were helpful in letting his parents check their home from time to time and let them feed their cat.
