Smoke in Roseville

Roseville and Placer Region Impacted by Smoke

Roseville, CA-  Local residents in Roseville and surrounding communities stepped outside this morning to uncharacteristically smoke-filled skies. The Camp Fire in Butte County is the culprit. The town of Paradise has been destroyed with over 6,400 homes destroyed.

A Red Flag Warning is in effect for strong winds and low relative humidity.

At one point, the blaze was estimated to be burning an estimated 1 square mile every 8 minutes. The fast moving blaze has plenty of fuel as Northern California is experiencing an above average dry start to the rainy season. Daytime temperatures have been hovering well above average.

Despite the poor conditions, Placer and Sacramento Air Quality Management Districts are still reporting good air quality. Use caution.
