They said it: Evacuating in Oroville

“It’s a little exhausting. I don’t want to say we’re getting used to it. But we’ve all gotten really good at evacuating. The community comes together.”

— Trevor Smith, owner of Big Red’s California BBQ in Oroville, where thousands this week fled the Thompson Fire amid windy, brutally hot weather. Butte County has suffered multiple disasters in recent years, including 2018’s deadly Camp Fire.
