Swedes Fire is 45% Contained in Butte County


OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Erratic winds are fueling a fire southeast of Oroville that is threatening more than 400 structures and forcing hundreds of people and animals to evacuate. Cal-fire is warning that the shifting winds mean the direction of the nearly 2,000-acre Swedes Fire in Butte County can change rapidly.  The fire is 45 percent contained.  So far, the blaze has destroyed 1 home, 1 garage, 3 outbuildings, and multiple vehicles. Cal-Fire says crews continue to strengthen existing containment lines. All evacuation warnings and orders remain in effect.
The 900 firefighters on the scene are among 5,000 firefighters battling 10 wildfires burning in California. A fire weather watch begins Monday for the Northern California mountains and foothills. Predicted thunderstorms could heighten fire danger.
