A Butte County couple fought side-by-side with firefighters to save their home from the Thompson Fire. The fire has burned thousands of acres in the Oroville area, has already destroyed several homes and cars, and has left multiple firefighters injured. It was perfect conditions to make things challenging for firefighters to get ahead of the Thompson Fire. It has burned more than 3,500 acres so far and has injured eight firefighters. Flames began on Thompson Flat Road on Tuesday and they’ve quickly spread up through the mountains, into neighborhoods and even up to the Oroville Dam. “We knew it was going to be a very bad summer and the fire season started early,” said Paul Raymond, whose home near View Lane was saved by the fire.
