Report: Interior Secretary Will Visit Butte County

U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke says he’s cancelled a planned trip to Asia at the direction of the White House and will instead travel to California to support efforts to contain the deadly wildfires scorching large areas of the state. Zinke said Tuesday he will visit the Northern California fire that wiped out the town of Paradise and killed 42 people. He will travel later to Southern California, where another fire is burning that has killed two people. Zinke says he plans to meet with California Gov. Jerry Brown to offer the administration’s support. The move comes after President Donald Trump -Zinke’s boss- on Saturday blamed poor “forest management” for making California’s fires so big, deadly and costly.
