Fire officials say the Creek Fire is continuing to spread and containment remains the same. So far the fire has burned just under 245,000 acres and is 18-percent contained.
Over 740 structures have been destroyed and nearly 10,000 structures are still threatened. But crews are expecting full containment by October 15th.
The North Complex Fire spanning across the Butte, Plumas, and Yuba counties, fire officials say it's 36-percent contained but the blaze has already burned more than 280,000 acres.
As we continue to move through another devastating fire season here in California, experts are now telling people that the best time to prepare for tragedy is before it happens.
Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Make sure you and your family have an emergency kit, which should include first aid supplies, and if you're on a scheduled medication make sure you bring that with you.
- You'll also want to keep flashlights, batteries, and chargers in your kit or in your car. Those will come in handy if the power goes out.
- If possible keep cash on hand and make sure your gas tank is full.
- If you need to evacuate it might also be a good idea to bring food and water with you.
