The Latest: 2 Arrested For Looting Fire Station During Blaze

Fire officials say two men were arrested on suspicion of burglarizing a fire station during the Camp Fire.

The department says the Concow men were booked into Butte County Jail on $250,000 bail. The blaze that started on Nov. 8 leveled the town of Paradise and heavily damaged the communities of Magalia and Concow.
