The fire has burned more than 626,000 acres on land and property since it broke out six weeks ago in Butte County.
The blaze is currently about 31% contained.
The Dixie Fire is the largest of nearly 100 major wildfires burning across a dozen Western states, including Alaska.
The wildfires, in large part, have been fueled by high temperatures, strong winds and dry weather.
