Silver Dollar Fairgrounds closing to Camp Fire survivors on Jan. 31

Earlier this week, Butte County officials announced that the shelter would close on Jan. 31. However, it was later announced that shelter operations have been extended until March 15, according to officials with Cal OES. On Saturday, Casey Hatcher, a spokesperson for Butte County, clarified that the March 15 date is only meant as a “contingency plan.” She refused to comment on what would happen if people remained at the shelter after Jan. 31.
