Deputy Body Cam Footage of Camp Fire Released

PARADISE, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California sheriff's office released harrowing body camera footage of a deputy who was nearly overrun by flames as he helped with evacuations the night the deadly Camp Fire swept through Paradise.

Butte County Sheriff's Deputy Aaron Parmley was searching for a group of stranded nurses when he was forced to abandon his vehicle and continue the search on foot surrounded by flames.

As smoke blackened the sky, Parmley activated his body camera thinking it would capture the last moments of his life. He found the nurses and they set off on foot on the ember-lined road.

The deputy spotted a bulldozer in the distance, used his flashlight to flag down it down, and the driver took them to safety.

Some Evacuation Areas Could Reopen Next Week

Some evacuation zones in Paradise could reopen next week. Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea made that announcement Wednesday. He said that barring any setbacks from the coming weather system they expect to open zones 3, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 early next week. Those zones are in the southern and eastern part of the town. Officials say that Pentz Road would be reopened to allow better access to the ridge from the valley.

The Sheriff did not announce a time for the opening of the rest of Paradise, but Town officials believe the areas could be reopened in the next two to three weeks. However, that time frame could change.

 

Sheriff Honea also said Wednesday that Concow zones A, C, and D, along with Yankee Hill, North Pines, South Firhaven, Old Magalia, South Coutolenc, and Morgan Ridge B zones could reopen by the mid to late part of next week, barring any setbacks from the weather or other circumstances.

Camp Fire and Stoney Fire Acreage Comparison

From KPAY Meteorologist Anthony Watts:

The #CampFire has burned approximately 125,000 acres according to this morning's briefing by Sheriff Honea.

The Stoney Fire has burned approximately 1000 acres near east Chico (962). That puts us at approximately 126,000 acres burned in the last week.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 1073280 total acres in Butte County. 2.4% of it is water surface (Lake Oroville, etc) leaving 1047040 acres of land surface

Some simple math: 126,000/1047040 x100 = ~ 12% of the county has burned so far. Sobering.

BCSO - Closed Evacuation Areas Still No Access to the Public

The Butte County Sheriff's Office says it's receiving many calls from residents requesting to be allowed access to closed evacuation areas. They say while they understand the frustrations and concerns of residents of areas affected by the Camp Fire, they are NOT allowing access to the public at this time.

According to a Butte County Sheriff's press release, any person that enters and remains in a closed area may be arrested and charged with a misdemeanor.

 

Also, residents that have chosen to shelter in place within the mandatory evacuation areas must remain in their residence. The Sheriff's Office says if you leave you will escorted out by law enforcement. If any resident leaves a closed evacuation area after sheltering in place will not be allowed to return until the evacuation has been lifted.
