Wildfire Engulfs Northern California Town Of Greenville

A fast-moving wildfire engulfed the small Northern California town of Greenville on Wednesday night, leveling much of the downtown and several homes.

A gas station, hotel, and bar were among the many other buildings also burned down to the ground.

The three-week-old fire known as the "Dixie Fire" has grown to over 428 square miles across Plumas and Butte counties. An official with the U.S. Forest Service said there's no end in sight yet.

“We did everything we could,” fire spokesman Mitch Matlow said. “Sometimes it’s just not enough.”

The town of Greenville currently has a population of about 800 people.
