Redding – All evacuation orders from the Carr Fire – one of the most destructive wildfires in California’s history – have now been lifted.
But hundreds will still have no home to go to.
The fire resulted in the evacuations of 40,000 and threatened the cities of Redding and Shasta Lake City.
Over 1,200 homes and 500 outbuildings have been destroyed along with 20 business premises.
The fire is currently 211,000 acres and 67 per cent contained.
It took 8 lives.
