157,000 People Evacuated As Fires Burn in Northern, Southern California

Thousands evacuated over fast-moving California wildfire

Officials were sending as many firefighters as they could, Cal Fire spokesman Rick Carhart said. "These firefighters were in the rescue mode all day yesterday".

The video shared on Facebook by Brynn Parott Chatfield documents their drive through the fire as they attempt to evacuate from their hometown of Paradise. Television reports showed several homes on fire in the Oak Park community.

Thirty-thousand people have been evacuated so far and the number of evacuees is expected to rise as embers push ahead of the fire.

"We had to drive through flames to make it out safely", she said.

An evacuation warning was issued for parts of Chico Thursday night as the Camp Fire blazed toward the city of 90,000 people. The conditions there are bone dry and erratic winds with speeds ranging from 20 to 55 miles per hour are rapidly fanning the flames.

The fire forced the evacuation of patients from Paradise's main hospital to hospitals in Oroville and Chico.

McLean estimated that the lost buildings numbered in the thousands in Paradise, about 180 miles northeast of San Francisco.

"Pretty much the community of Paradise is destroyed".

California wildfire season should now be approaching their conclusion, as Autumn yields the general end point for the driest time of year.

Another fire to the west has burned more than 9 square miles in Ventura County but has slowed since reaching the footprint of a fire stripped away vegetation in 2013.

"We sequestered the populous in certain areas that did not escape earlier, so they would be safe and would have fire resources around them", McLean said. "We're anxious sick. They do have a vehicle, but they both are older and can be confused at times".
