Plumas National Forest
An Oakland man is facing murder and arson charges for allegedly stabbing an Emeryville man to death at a campground in the Plumas National Forest Saturday morning and setting the surrounding woods on fire, according to Plumas County prosecutors.
What started out as a shortcut turned into a four day ordeal for a woman who was nine months pregnant and eventually gave birth while lost in the Plumas National Forest.
Firefighters have been making progress against a series of wildfires burning in Northern California, but lightning sparked more than a dozen new fires late Friday and early Saturday.
Strong winds and low humidity have helped a wildfire burning in Northern California’s Plumas National Forest expand to nearly 47 square miles. The fire has prompted the evacuation of 55 homes.
