All Evacuations Lifted for Swedes Fire in Butte County

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Cal-Fire says all evacuations have been lifted as firefighters gain ground on the Swedes Fire burning near Oroville.  As of this morning, the wildfire had burned more than 2100 acres, with more than 300 structures still threatened.  But Cal-Fire says containment is at 75 percent. State fire Capt. Scott McLean told KPAY Monday that the weather and dry conditions posed big challenges to fire crews. McLean says the fire has burned one residence, a garage and three outbuildings since it broke out on Friday outside Bangor. It's one of 10 significant wildfires burning around the state after tens of thousands of recent lightning strikes.
