Evacuees To Be Moved

Officials are looking for more stable housing for roughly 600 people still sleeping at a Northern California fairground following a deadly wildfire last year.

The Chico Enterprise-Record reports that a lease to operate an emergency shelter at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds ends Jan. 31.

The American Red Cross, which has been operating the shelter, and Butte County are trying to find housing for remaining evacuees.

Red Cross spokeswoman Dianna Van Horn says most people are in trailers and RVs parked in the lot with several hundred more people staying in dorms.

She said the agency is working individually with evacuees.
