Evacuations ordered in Northern California as fast-moving wildfire spreads

In Southern California, the 4,047ha Woolsey Fire led authorities on Friday morning to expand mandatory evacuation orders to the entire city of Malibu, known for the many celebrities that call it home.

The sheriff confirmed reports that evacuees had to abandon their vehicles. The business district is destroyed. "And it moved very, very quickly from a rather remote area to populated areas".

Almost 30,000 people were forced to evacuate on Thursday when a wildfire roared through this California town, located about 180 miles northeast of San Francisco.

The dead were found in the same part of Paradise, the Butte County Sheriff's Office said.

One such unofficial report on Woods' feed said seven elderly residents from Feather Canyon Retirement Home were found safe at another retirement home in Oroville. Many got stuck in gridlocked traffic trying to escape. That includes all of Malibu as the flames race toward the sea.

Los Angeles County Fire Department tweeted that the fire is heading towards the ocean, punctuating the message with the declaration: "Imminent threat!"

McLean estimated that several thousand buildings were lost in Paradise, about 180 miles (290 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco. A thick, yellow haze from the fire hung in the air and gave the appearance of twilight in the middle of the day.

In all, three major fires are burning across the state.

"I don't have all of the details because we have investigators out on the field attempting to get to those locations" where the casualties were reported, Honea said at a press conference.




"It was like Dante's Inferno", said Paradise resident Eric, who was crying because he was unable to rescue his cat.

Driven by strong winds and dry conditions, the blaze dubbed the Camp Fire swept through the town of Paradise and threatened its 26,000 residents with 50-foot (15-meter) high flames.

"It was absolutely dark", said resident Mike Molloy, who said he made a split decision based on the wind to leave Thursday morning, packing only the minimum and joining a sea of other vehicles.

Among them was Kim Curtis, who was searching for her grandmother, who told family at 8 a.m. Thursday that she would flee her Paradise home in her Buick with her cat. He worked side-by-side with neighbors all night, using a backhoe to create a fire line, determined not to lose his house this time.

On Friday, the flames jumped the highway and headed into coastal areas. The company said it later noticed damage to a transmission tower near the town. The bucolic country landscape dotted with bay and oak trees will take years to recover.

Rural areas fared little better. Seven burned out Mercedes chassis are all that's left of Ernst Mercedes Specialist lot.

6,453 of those structures were residences, 260 were commercial buildings.

Adding to the complexity of the disaster is tonight the district's youth convention is being held at Trinity Life Center in Sacramento - a destination city for numerous thousands evacuating fire-threatened communities. "They were abandoned because traffic was so bad, backed up for hours".
