“Our cash flow is the most desperate ever, and here we are dipping into savings.”
Feather River College

Breathing easier may be just a few more months away for residents who have lived in fear of wildfires since the Moonlight Fire in 2007 caused so many of them to evacuate their homes, and even the state during the weeks of smoke- and ash-filled skies that seemed to spread from Southern California all the way to the Oregon border.

Smoke spiraling up from the south bank of the Feather River marks a fire just east of Belden. The blaze was noted about 2 p.m. Tuesday, June 29, and Forest Service fire crews quickly responded. By 3 p.m. most of the flames were knocked down and crews were mopping up. Cause of the fire is suspected to be an unattended brush-burn that was fanned by heavy winds. A couple of outbuildings were destroyed along with some acreage. Photo By Will Farris
