Fire evacuations lifted near Gold Rush-era town

WEAVERVILLE — Evacuation orders have been lifted for residents of some 200 homes, as crews make good progress against a wildfire burning near the Northern California town of Weaverville.

Fire officials said the blaze in Trinity County was 45 percent contained Monday night.

The fire has burned just under 1 square mile, or 580 acres, of timber and brush about 2 miles west of town.

CalFire spokeswoman Cris Hartman said the blaze, sparked Sunday afternoon near Highway 299, damaged one structure, likely a barn or a large outbuilding.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Weaverville is at the base of the Trinity Alps Wilderness area. The Gold Rush-era boomtown is on the National Register of Historic Places.
