PARADISE, Calif. - At Tuesday's Paradise Town Council meeting, officials provided an update from various agencies.

Action News Now reporter Cecile Juliette broke down the various topics discussed in the meeting. 

Unclaimed animals

There are currently 110 animals at Del Oro in Oroville and 272 at the Gridley Fairgrounds, which are mostly chickens.

Open and Closed roads

They also discussed opened and closed roads. The only road that is currently closed is Young Avenue, which closed on Tuesday, Jan. 8, due to a collapsed culvert

One neighbor that lives near the culvert gave high remarks to local government about the way it was handled. 

"I think they're doing a pretty amazing job so far," said Tommy Barrett, a Paradise resident. "I'm just wondering whether that's going to continue." 

Service providers

Comcast is promising a new one-gig capable system that will be far beyond what Paradise customers had before. 

The company said it should have cable TV, internet and phone services restored to existing by the end of February. 

Controlled burning

Additionally, Cal Fire stressed that property owners may be burning debris when they get their property ready to rebuild and warned against burning on the footprint of the destroyed home itself. 

A representative of Cal Fire said that they will put together a "post-Camp Fire best practices" guide on how to burn so that residents do not disturb the footprint of the structure. 


With high wind gusts expected in the coming days, Paradise Public Works is warning that trees in the burn could become even more dangerous.

Dry conditions, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive high fire danger and a Red Flag Warning across most of northern California Monday. Winds will diminish and temperatures will warm up on Tuesday. We'll stay dry and heat up later this week. Cooler temperatures then return for your weekend.
