The Dixie Fire that is ravaging Northern California has destroyed Sierra Bible Camp, a mainstay of Churches of Christ for 67 years.

The third-largest wildfire in California’s history ignited July 14 but has exploded in recent days. It burned across Plumas and Butte counties overnight.

By Friday morning, the fire had grown by 110 square miles and leveled the Plumas County camp, which the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection had used as a base of operations last month.
