While the grass fire just sits at around 3 acres, the bustling winds have helped the fire jump containment multiple times. There are currently structures threatened and the Butte County Sheriff is encouraging anyone with disabilities or functional issues to begin evacuating. They are also encouraging the evacuation of large animals.
