Officials say flash flooding has hit areas devastated by the massive Camp Fire and swift water rescue teams have been deployed.
The teams are helping people stranded Thursday in vehicles on a road that flooded after a downpour in the Paradise area.
Rick Carhart, a spokesman with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, says several vehicles were trapped on a road on the outskirts of Chico.
Carhart says there are also reports of flash flooding in areas that were not burned.
The Butte County Sheriff’s Department ordered evacuations but could not say how many people were affected.
An evacuation order was issued for Honey Run road from 200 block of Skyway including Horse Run Lane.
People were being taken to a church in Chico.
