California's Carr Fire Jumps Sacramento River, Reaching Outskirts Of Redding

California's Carr Fire Jumps Sacramento River, Reaching Outskirts Of Redding

The blaze has burned dozens of homes in the communities of Shasta, Keswick and the west side of Redding.

"I didn't know if the fire was just going to jump out behind a bush and grab me and suck me in", Williams said. One of those prompted the closure of much of Yosemite National Park in California.

They brought "everything but the fishes" home in portable habitats Thursday evening, and Warren confirmed Friday morning that all Turtle Bay animals were "in a safe place".

Belongie said she has prepared for the worst, if flames, edged on by winds pushing flames over parched land, continue moving through Redding.

Weekend forecasts call for brutally hot weather, with temperatures reaching 110 degrees on Saturday and Sunday.

While live on air, KRCR was later forced to evacuate its studios. The blaze that broke out Monday was caused by a mechanical issue involving a vehicle, officials said. He was the second bulldozer operator killed in a California blaze in less than two weeks. Some 5,000 other buildings were threatened, fire officials said.

"We're trying to move people out of the path of it because it is now deadly and it is now moving at speeds and in ways we have not seen before in this area". A Cal Fire spokesman could only confirm portions of west Redding were under evacuation.

This year so far, nearly 4 million acres (1.6 million hectares) have been blackened by wildfires, above a 10-year average of 3.6 million acres (1.5 million hectares) over the same period, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

Some 1,750 firefighters are battling the blaze, Cal Fire said.

Two other major fires are also burning in the state.

He says the fire is "taking everything down in its path". But it wasn't swift enough to spare them all. "There have been some injuries to civilians and firefighters".

The California Governor's Office of Emergency Services said it had activated a state operations center to provide assistance in multiple wildfires burning in Northern and Southern California.

Gov. Jerry Brown has declared states of emergency for the three largest fires, authorizing the state to rally resources to local governments, the AP writes.

A huge forest fire continued to grow outside Yosemite National Park.

The blaze on Thursday killed a bulldozer operator as he worked to try to contain the blaze.

Hundreds of miles to the south, the Cranston Fire grew to 7.5 square miles (19 square kilometers) and about 3,000 residents remained under evacuation orders in Idyllwild and several neighboring communities.

A wildfire authorities believe was sparked by arson has burned five homes and forced an entire forest town east of Los Angeles to evacuate.
