Sundial Bridge Covered In Ash And Debris, But Undamaged By Carr Fire

2 killed thousands evacuated in wildfire

A raging wildfire in Northern California grew dramatically on Thursday and Friday, killing at least two people battling the blaze, forcing scores of residents from their homes, destroying more than a dozen buildings and threatening thousands more. Cal Fire said the blaze began Monday afternoon and was caused by "mechanical failure of vehicle", although the agency did not elaborate.

At least 65 homes had been destroyed, but a walk through at least one neighborhood revealed dozens more reduced to ash and rubble. "It was like a Tasmanian devil", McLean told Reuters.

Although the property wasn't immediately threatened by flames Friday morning, Warren said worsening air quality made the park unsafe for its 50-some fauna.

A massive wildfire in the San Bernardino National Forest, known as the Cranston Fire, prompted thousands to flee their homes and led to the arrest of a man.

Almost 5,000 homes were listed by CalFire as threatened.

The fire grew 15,000 aces overnight from Wednesday to Thursday, and by evening took on another 8,000 acres.

"Really, we're in a life-saving mode right now in Redding", said Jonathan Cox, battalion chief with Cal Fire.

Firefighters discuss plans while battling the Carr Fire in Shasta, Calif., on Thursday, July 26, 2018. The Ferguson Fire near Yosemite National Park, which has charred 45,911 acres (18,500 hectares), was 29 percent contained.

Wildfires have blackened an estimated 4.15 million acres (1.68 million hectares) in the United States this year.

Reports surfaced on Thursday that the bridge had been damaged in the Carr Fire.

The blaze has crossed the Sacramento River and now threatens hundreds of homes on the western fringes of the city of Redding. Two people so far - a Redding firefighter and a private bulldozer operator - have died.

Teague says staff and volunteers were mindful of the brightening glow of the fire burning nearby in the hills above Redding.

Rob Wright, 61, and his wife stayed to fight off flames with a high-powered water hose.

More than 3,000 firefighters have been deployed to contain the flames, and the destruction is expected to worsen throughout the weekend as high temperatures and dry conditions inhibit efforts. "We are just waiting it out. crossing our fingers and hoping for the best".

Roads out of the city of 90,000 people were jammed with motorists trying to escape the flames, social media postings showed.
