Rain falling in areas scarred by Camp Fire, will intensify Thursday

(CNN)A series of storms set to bring some relief to firefighters in Northern California has thousands of people afraid that flash flooding and mudslides could crush what’s left of the towns charred by the devastating Camp Fire.

Almost 1 million people are under flash flood watch in that part of California, where 4 to 6 inches of rain are expected to fall through Friday. Rain began in Paradise late Wednesday morning, dropping nearly an inch by late afternoon.
Nearly two weeks after the Golden State’s deadliest and most destructive fire began, the potential downpours could put an end to the fire season or at least ease the fire risk while also bringing new dangers.
