Residents who want to verify if their home has been loss and receive information regarding local resources to help with recovery can go to the center at 202 Mira Loma Drive in Oroville, at the Department of Employment and Social Services/Public Health Administration Building.

Though mandatory evacuation orders were imposed, many Lumpkin Road residents elected to shelter in place, Chavez said.

Fire crews battling a wildfire that has destroyed 10 homes near the Northern California town of Oroville were able to slow its growth overnight.

The fire could make air unhealthy to breathe in parts of Los Angeles, the nation's second-largest city, and nearby suburbs, the South Coast Air Quality Management District said in an advisory. That blaze reached 3,680 acres by Friday afternoon and was 30 percent contained, Cal Fire said in a release.

Cal Fire Public Information Office expects a hard fight due to the conditions created from years of drought and the past winter's heavy rain.

More than 1,000 nuclear detonations occurred at the 1,360-square-mile (3522-square-kilometer) secure federal reservation from 1951 to 1992.

The fire has burned 10 residences and 20 outbuildings and is threatening 1,300 structures, including 500 homes, Cal Fire reported Thursday morning.
