SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The Camp Fire continues to rage on in Butte County, displacing 52,000 residents and claiming at least 56 lives. Outside of Butte County, the smoke from the fire is making a big impact on air quality.

Many local school districts and college campuses have closed because of the poor air quality which has reached hazardous levels in some parts of the valley. On Wednesday night Rocklin, Roseville, and Gridley were experiencing hazardous conditions with air quality index (AQI ) numbers  above 300.
