The Butte County Sheriff issued an evacuation plan for the Butte County Jail Sunday afternoon.

All inmates have been safely transported to Santa Rita Jail in Alameda County.

About 80 employees were involved in evacuating and transporting the inmates.

Transportation was provided by surrounding sheriff’s offices in Butte, Placer, Shasta and Tehama County. The caravan was assisted by the California Highway Patrol.
