New satellite images and on-the-ground photos from Greenville, the Northern California town of about 1,000 people that was leveled by the flames of the Dixie Fire last week, paint a sad but increasingly familiar picture of a wildfire's wrath.

Greenville was a Gold Rush town, nestled in Gold Country in Plumas County, and it still had a Main Street that evoked the mid-19th Century with its clapboard-sided storefronts.

The Dixie Fire has so far destroyed over 1,000 buildings, including around 550 homes, many of them in this one town.

Unlike the Camp Fire in 2018, the Dixie Fire has not moved quickly enough to claim any lives. But much like Paradise was leveled in that fire, Greenville will face a long and tough road to rebuild — and the loss of California history is being deeply felt there as well, with buildings gone that were over a century old.

The Dixie Fire continues burning and is the largest single wildfire in recorded state history, at over 500,000 acres. As of Wednesday morning, it was 30% contained, but it was still actively burning in Plumas National Forest and Lassen National Forest, and in the woods outside Westwood, population 1,600. That town is currently evacuated and is "surrounded by fire," according to one evacuee.

This map from today shows where the fire is active:
