that fire east of lake oroville is over 2500 acres now , mostly heading north into deer hunting areas .
and one person has been arrested for starting the fire .
he was camped out in open area and had a camp fire get away from him .
there are no campfires allowed in any forest or BLM land in calif. right now and some campgrounds wont allow them either cause of fire danger .

a friend that only hunted with his .68 cal brown bess rifle and only used round ball , could blow a cigarette pack to shreds at 100 yards and flip a buck end over end at about same distance .
he won many many rendezvous shooting trophies for best shot . also long gong best shot .
long gong is a moving target . starts at 100 yards and goes back 50 yards at a time till last shooter hits it . he been known to use that same brown bess rifle and hit target at 500 yards . seen him hit 400 yard a few times
