Residents return to homes affect by Boles Fire
WEED, Calif. -- Many victims of the Boles Fire were able to dig through what is left of their memories after the flames tore through their homes. 

News10's Jessica De Nova spoke with one family who saw the destruction under the light of day for the first time since the blaze began on Monday.

Like many members of this small, tight-knit community, several generations of the Baltar family grew up here in Weed. 

Peggy Baltar allowed News10 to capture the moment when she, her daughters and grandchildren saw what the fire did to their home. 

Baltar lived in her home on Hillside Drive for nearly 40 years. She was born and raised in Weed and saw her children and grandchildren grow up in the same community.

Baltar lost her husband 11 years ago and returned to her home today in hopes of finding memories of him.

"The cast of his hands and urn was here, but he'll always be on the foundation because it was our house and we made it our home," she said.

The younger children tried to make the best of the situation, too young to understand the devastation. As those who know better sifted for something the flames may have left behind. 

As families continue to uncover what is left, the City of Weed plans the community's reconstruction. 

"I believe they're setting something up next week at the college for information," building inspector David Smith said.

Smith says after the clean-up is over homeowners need to be aware of the rules around rebuilding. 

"The portion of the house that is damaged is brought back up to today's code," he said. 

Among the challenges ahead is figuring out what belongs to who. 

"Once they clear all this property, there won't be anything left. There won't be foundation. There's no fences. There's no trees. There's nothing left, so we've got to reestablish property lines," he said.

The building inspector says licensed surveyors have maps which will allow them to reestablish those property lines. 

Before that can happen, all the debris left behind has to be picked up. The city has arranged with Cal-Trans and CalRecycle to clear debris for free, but that will not start until Sept. 29. 

Fire Update Sept. 19
Boles Fire
WEED, Calif. -- The Boles Fire is now 90 percent contained and about 480 acres. Officials say 1,100 structures are still threatened. If you have any information regarding the Boles Fire, call 1-800-468-4408. A reward up to $10,000 is being offered for a lead to the cause of the fire.

All evacuations are lifted for the fire. There is an evacuation center for those who need it at the Mt. Shasta Armory on Everett Memorial Highway.

Weed Elementary and Weed High School are hoping to start school on Tuesday.

Onion Mountain Fire
MERLIN, Ore. -- Fire crews were able to make some headway on containment lines on the Onion Mountain Fire. It is still 4,000 acres and is now 20 percent contained. 

A Level 1 evacuation is still in effect for residents in the Pickett Creek, Shan Creek, Taylor Creek and Galice Creek areas.

Happy Camp Complex
HAPPY CAMP, Calif. -- The Happy Camp Complex fire is 72 percent contained and about 130,000 acres. Six structures have been destroyed and two have been damaged. 

There will be a public meeting tonight at 6 p.m. at the Department of Natural Resources building in Orleans. Fire crews are working on suppression efforts.

Founders Day Fire
PROSPECT, Ore. -- Crews say a fire nearby Crater Lake National Park is having positive effects. It is helping remove large amounts of dead ground vegetation. The fire was found near the end of August. It is about 225 acres. The park says the fire is not effecting park operations. 

Retardant record set on massive California fire
PLACERVILLE, Calif. (AP) — The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has set an agency record for the amount of retardant dropped on a wildfire in a single day.

State fire spokeswoman Lynne Tolmachoff says air tankers on Wednesday poured 203,375 gallons of the red slurry on an explosive Northern California wildfire that has now burned through nearly 120 square miles of timber and vegetation.

As of Friday, Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service together had dumped 530,000 gallons on the El Dorado County blaze.

Tolmachoff says the fire is burning so fiercely it is running through the retardant lines because of the extreme drought conditions.

The wind-whipped wildfire 60 miles east of Sacramento is just 10 percent contained. About 2,800 people are evacuated.

2 cases of severe respiratory illness confirmed
SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Children's Hospital says two children have tested positive for a severe respiratory illness.

The hospital said Friday the children who contracted enterovirus D68 had preexisting health conditions. They were both stable enough to be discharged from the facility earlier this week.

Tests by the federal Centers for Disease Control on three other children came back negative. The hospital said two of those children had been released and the third had died, however Seattle Children's says no children in Washington have died from enterovirus D68 related illnesses.

The virus, which has sickened hundreds of children nationwide, typically causes illness lasting about a week, and most children recover with no lasting problems. Children with asthma may be more susceptible to serious illness.

The virus likely spreads similarly to the common cold, through sneezing or coughing or touching contaminated surfaces.

Man guilty of murder in neighbor feud shooting
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — A Josephine County man has been found guilty of murder in the shooting of his neighbor in a long-running feud.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports that a jury Thursday rejected the self-defense argument of Donald Easley in the Sept. 7, 2013 shooting of 65-year-old Laron Estes at a make-shift fence separating their yards in the rural community of Kerby.

Easley did not testify at trial, but told investigators that Estes grabbed for him through the fence as Easley was putting up barbed wire, so he pulled a pistol and shot him.

But investigators said Estes was shot from a distance as he ran away.

Estes lived in the house where a previous neighbor Easley had shot and killed in 2009 had lived. That case was ruled self-defense.
