At least 20,000 residents in parts of Butte and Yuba counties near Oroville were given evacuation orders Tuesday night into Wednesday because of the growing Bear Fire. The fire is part of the North Complex, a lightning-ignited group of fires that started last month in the Plumas National Forest area.
CapRadio Visual Journalist Andrew Nixon documented the fire's devastation Wednesday, including the town of Berry Creek, which residents fear may be destroyed.
