Financed and built cooperatively between the US Forest Service, The California Division of Forestry and Butte County. The tower, an Aermotor Company product, is believed to have been erected in 1925. The cab modification took place in 1959. The CCC era BC-201 residence was replaced by the CDF in 1973. The house's planning number is 660. There are nine, 60' Aermotor Company towers in the CDF&FP fire detection system. All of CDF&FP's Aermotor Company cabs have had catwalks added, windows replaced and catwalk access doors installed.
