The agency’s website says the camp in Lake County is home to about 95 minimum-security inmates who help fight wildfires. Lt. Charlene Billings says Dunning is assigned as a firefighter but was not working when he disappeared.

He’s the fifth state inmate to escape this month. Three were captured. Authorities are still searching for 27-year-old Justin Franks, who escaped from Folsom State Prison on Dec. 22.
