Man detained after fatal shooting in Chico

One man is dead and another is behind bars as police are starting this week with plenty of questions about a middle of the afternoon shooting. It all happened in Chico about 12:30 p.m. Sunday, on West 9th Street and Cedar Street. Chico police say they got a call of shots fired.

Caldwell Fire nearly triples in size, evacuation orders in place

In the Modoc National Forest, the Caldwell Fire has burned over 43,749 acres and has no containment. Evacuation orders are now in effect for parts of Lake Tule Lake. That includes areas south of highway 1-39, including "county road 120 to 124."

Gold Fire burns over 21,000 acres

In Lassen County, the Gold Fire is still burning near Adin. It’s been burning for a week now, the fire has scorched over 21,000 acres. It is now 55% contained. This morning, evacuation orders remain in effect. The fire continues to burn in areas with private residences, ranches, and commercial operations including agriculture, livestock and timber.

Containment lines hold back Hog Fire growth this weekend

Also in Lassen County, crews are working to put out the Hog Fire burning just west of Susanville. This fire is now 60% contained and has burned more than 9,500 acres. The alert for unhealthy air quality in Lassen County remains in place.

Badger Fire 95% contained Monday morning

In Siskiyou County, crews are making the final push to contain the Badger Fire, which fire is now 95% contained and has burned over 500 acres. The fire started up near Yreka over a week ago.

Stimulus proposal

Senate Republicans are supposed to release their $1 trillion stimulus proposal today, but top White House negotiators are making a late push to scale back the legislation. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows both mentioned the possibility of moving forward on a less ambitious proposal, one that would focus on time-sensitive issues like school reopenings and the enhanced unemployment benefits that expire at the end of July. However, as it stands, the Republican proposal wouldn't renew those unemployment benefits outright. Instead, there would be another around of $1,200 stimulus checks and an extension of the federal eviction moratorium. Democrats have said they are in favor of extending the unemployment enhancements since the economy is still weak, but Republicans worry that the payments may deter people from going back to their jobs.
