10AM Update: Dixie Fire In Butte County Explodes To Over 1200 Acres

A fire with some destructive potential started in the Feather River Canyon in Butte County Tuesday near where the Camp Fire was sparked in 2018. Located in the Jarbo Gap area and burning in very heavy vegetation with difficult access, the Dixie Fire was estimated at 60 acres Tuesday night, and it’s grown overnight to more than 1200 acres. Hand crews are having to hike into the location. The fire got a big jump against containment efforts Tuesday when air resources had to be grounded because a drone was spotted in the area. The Butte County Sheriff’s Office issued an evacuation warning for Pulga and the East Concow area on Wednesday morning. The fire is reported to be burning away from populate areas.
