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 .

for now , HWY 299 west of weaverville is OPEN to one way controlled traffic 24/7  . they say expect 45 minute delays . 

also be aware if you normally camp near 299 , near the fire area , lots of campgrounds are  CLOSED along with lots of roads heading into the forest around the fire . 

good luck B zone hunters
