On Friday morning, evacuation orders were lifted for all of the fires due to high containment in Butte County.

The Cherokee Fire north of Oroville has been 100 percent contained at 8, 417 acres according to a press release from Cal Fire. The La Porte Fire is is 90 percent contained and the Honey Fire is 100 percent contained at 150 acres.

The evacuation shelter at the Church Nazarene may close Saturday by noon. The closing of roads is also in the process due to the Honey Fire which occurred at Honey Run Road.
