Thousands Flee, Several Hurt as Wildfire Scorches Northern California  

After a wildfire burned through rural northern California, injuring people, and destroying an undetermined number of homes, thousands of residents were still under evacuation orders on Saturday.

A neighbourhood city of approximately 2,600 people was rapidly engulfed in flames when the fire broke out near a wood products plant on Friday.

A lot of smoke and ashy pieces were falling, according to the evacuees.

Winds of 35 mph (56 kph) fanned the fire, known as the Mill fire, and it swiftly covered four square miles (10.3 square kilometres) of land.

Grass, bushes, and wood all caught fire as the flames rushed through them. There were evacuation orders in place for about 7,500 residents in the Weed area and several surrounding areas.

State of emergency was declared in Siskiyou County by Governor Gavin Newsom.
