Chico police issue online scam alert related to Dixie firefighters

CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Police Department is warning about a firefighting-related scam that has been occurring online.

Officers say people have been posing as CAL FIRE firefighters and have been asking online for rooms to rent in Chico while they are working on the  Dixie Fire.

Chico police said CAL FIRE firefighters will "NOT solicit housing online/or on social media as they have other resources provided for them, to include housing while fighting fires away from their local jurisdictions."

They are warning people not to fall prey to this scam, and said people should always be cautious with any online solicitors.
