Thousands flee raging wildfires in California

Thousands flee raging wildfires in California

They predict, Gusty winds out of the east-northeast will develop across ridgetops in northwest California Wednesday night through Thursday evening.

A smoke advisory has also been issued for the San Francisco area through Friday. The extent of the injuries and damage was not immediately known. To make matters worse, as the flames approached, they sparked explosions and toppled utility poles.

Percifield said that he drove off the road a few times in the low visibility conditions but eventually made it to a meadow that is maintained for residents to gather in the event of fires.

"People were abandoning their cars and running with their babies and kids".

Butte County Sherriff Kory Honea told the Chico Enterprise-Record that "it's bad". "It was just a wall of fire on each side of us, and we could hardly see the road in front of us".

The blaze continued burning late Thursday, prompting authorities to evacuate residents near the Los Angeles County line. Residents awoke to the stench of smoke and the morning horizon drenched in an ashen-orange pallor that was hard to see or drive through, hindering evacuations.

Gov. -elect Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency in the area and has requested federal funds to help those impacted by wildfires in the state.

"There's nothing much left standing", he said. He "knocked on doors, yelled and screamed" to alert as many residents as possible, Bernacett said. Within minutes, her family and thousands of people were racing to escape the raging flames of the Camp Fire.

Morgan Mason said her father told her that he could hear propane tanks blowing up all over Paradise this morning.

Kelly Lee called shelters looking for her husband's 93-year-old grandmother, Dorothy Herrera, who was last heard from on Thursday morning.

More than 40 patients were evacuated to other facilities. "And just praying for a miracle, honestly", said Curtis, who lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. "There are dozens of strike teams that we're bringing in from all parts of the state". Residents abandoned vehicles and ran from the flames carrying children and pets, officials said.

"We're getting them on other vehicles with room".

According to Sacramento Bee reporter Ryan Lillis, some 60 to 70 people were awaiting an emergency evacuation at a Walgreen's in Paradise. "We tried to get all the nondigital things that we could - you know, stuff that couldn't be replaced", Peete said.

The wildfire was reported around daybreak. Within six hours, it had grown to more than 69 square kilometres, Gaddie said. Dramatic footage shows flames closing in around the highways out of town and thick smoke hanging in the sky, obscuring the horizon.

A Red Flag Warning is in effect for strong winds and low relative humidity. "Everything is a very receptive fuel bed". But the main facility, Adventist Health Feather River Hospital, was not, spokeswoman Jill Kinney said. She said a group of 20 other patients were initially evacuated but then returned to the facility because of gridlocked traffic.

Four hospital employees were briefly trapped in the basement and rescued by California Highway Patrol officers, Kinney said.
