Evacuation notices have been lifted for the Feather River canyon communities of Belden, Tobin and Storrie as the Canyon Complex fire rages around Tobin. The community itself escaped damage except for the water system which was heavily damaged by falling trees. The trees took out the pipe of the water system which was originally built in 1910. Highway 70 reopened to one-way traffic escorts from Grandiew to the maintenance station located at the Greenville Wye.
