Drift Smoke from Butte County Fire Enters Contra Costa County

Camp Fire Smoke Smoke from the Camp Fire

"This fire is very risky, please evacuate if asked to do so!" the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire, tweeted.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company said about 14,000 residents of Butte and Plumas counties were without power due to fire activity and requests from firefighters to cut electricity in certain areas for safety, Sacramento Bee reported. The fire was first reported around 6:30 a.m., and over just a few hours, the fire grew from 10 acres to more than 10,000.

California wildfires are burning again, with the Camp Fire near Chico the latest large fire to erupt in Northern California.

The fire began around 6:33 a.m. on November 8 and swept through the area at a speed of about one football field every three seconds, according to California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire).

"By the time we got out, the flames were a half mile away from the school".

"The blaze is being driven by fairly strong winds", Carhart said.

Residents raced to escape on roads that turned into tunnels of fire as thick smoke darkened the daytime sky on Thursday, wiping out what a Cal Fire official said was a couple of thousand structures.

Cal Fire tweeted that the fire was "very dangerous" and urged people to follow evacuation orders. He started putting out the fire and yelled at her to get back inside, she says.

The Woolsey Fire, which began overnight, covered more than 3,000 hectares Friday morning and was threatening 75,000 homes, the Ventura County Fire Department said on Twitter, adding there had been no reports of fatalities or severe injuries.

The wildfire has spread from rural to populated areas, going from Pulga to Concow and down to Paradise, a town of 26,000 people about 85 miles north of Sacramento.

"Pretty much the community of Paradise is destroyed, it's that kind of devastation", said Cal Fire Capt. Scott McLean as quoted by The Associated Press. The message I want to get out is: "If you can evacuate, you need to evacuate".

The destructive Camp Fire has already burned over 18,000 acres of Butte County, Northern California as of Thursday afternoon, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

A wildfire is hopscotching across a northern California county at a rate of roughly 80 football fields per minute, forcing evacuations, injuring residents and sending families racing from their homes.

California is experiencing one of its worst fire years ever, with 621,743 acres burned through Sunday in areas covered by Cal Fire, almost twice the amount during the same period of 2017 and almost triple the five-year average.
