California: Residents return after Camp Fire

California: Residents return after Camp Fire (KRCR/CNN)


For the first time in more than a month, there are no more evacuation orders in connection to northern California's Camp Fire.

The wildfire began back on November eighth and burned more than 153-thousand acres in Butte County before being contained 17 days later.

But it was not until Saturday that evacuation orders were finally lifted for residents of the town of Paradise and other unincorporated areas.

Those communities were among the worst hit by the Camp Fire, which killed at least 86 people and destroyed nearly 14-thousand structures.

State office officials say the cause of the Camp Fire remains under investigation.

A federal judge has ordered a state utility company to explain any role it played in causing the fire by the end of this year.
