On the morning of November 8, 2018, the Camp Fire erupted in Butte County near the community of Pulga. High winds, low humidity, and extremely dry vegetation fueled the fire in a south westerly direction at a high rate of speed into the town of Paradise. At least 85 individuals lost their lives and more than 18,000 structures were destroyed. 13,972 of the total number of structures destroyed were dwellings. The Fire caused 53,000 individuals to be evacuated, many of which are now displaced and without homes. The devastating impacts will not fully be known for years.
The Community Development Director and Code Enforcement Manager have created a policy to temporarily modify the enforcement of camping regulations in the unincorporated area of the County for the purpose of housing survivors of the Camp Fire. This modification is necessary due to the devastating impacts of the Camp Fire and large number of individuals and families that are displaced. This policy will expire on October 31, 2019.
