Oroville, CA – On Sunday, September 13, 2020, the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) requested assistance from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in providing drone imagery to the public areas impacted by the North Complex West Zone Fire. The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office led an interagency response team from four law enforcement agencies to assist in a rapid aerial assessment of the damaged areas.

On Tuesday, September 15, 2020, the teams arrived in Butte County and immediately began capturing video and photos of the areas affected, based on CAL FIRE’s Damage Assessment Maps. Over the last three days, in coordination with CAL FIRE Air Operations and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the teams focused on the most heavily impacted areas, Berry Creek and Feather Falls. In total, the drones captured imagery covering more than 50 square miles of damage. The video and images are now available for public viewing, and can be found by visiting the following links:
