Camp Fire Nearly Quadruples in Size Overnight

Evacuations Ordered in Butte County California as the Camp Fire Expands Thousands evacuated over fast-moving California wildfire

About two-thirds of the city of Malibu was ordered evacuated early Friday as a ferocious Southern California's wildfire roared toward the beachside community that is home for many Hollywood celebrities.

Resident Shari Bernacett told the Associated Press that she "knocked on doors, yelled and screamed" to get mobile home residents to leave as fire consumed the hillside. "My hometown of Paradise is on fire".

Colton Percifield, 20, said in an interview that he awoke at friend's house in Concow to find smoke outside around 7 a.m. Spot fires soon encroached on the house.

As of Friday Morning, the wildfire in Butte County has scorched 70,000 acres (109.38 square miles) since it was first reported around 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

He said approximately 40,000 residents in Butte County have been evacuated due to the Camp Fire.

A separate massive blaze raging in Northern California since Thursday morning has almost quadrupled in size overnight, according to one Californian fire official.

The full extent of the destruction is still unknown but authorities believe up to 1,000 structures have been destroyed and most of those were in Paradise, a Cal Fire spokesman said. Those fires were eventually contained, but a new inferno which sparked up in Plumas National Forest this week has devastated tens of thousands of acres already, and it's turned the town of Paradise, California, into a hellscape.

"The blaze is being driven by fairly strong winds", Carhart said.

Rescuers used a bulldozer to push abandoned cars out of the way in order to reach a hospital and evacuate patients as the fire engulfed the building, Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter said.

Los Angeles County Deputy Fire Chief Dave Richardson says 45,000 people in Ventura County and 43,000 more in Los Angeles County were ordered to evacuate overnight.

Voluntary evacuations of 75,000 homes were called for because of the Woolsey Fire that included parts of Thousand Oaks in Ventura County northwest of Los Angeles, the site of a mass shooting incident this week in which 12 people were killed.

Almost 2,300 firefighters are battling the flames, but as of Friday morning, it was still zero percent contained. "We're anxious sick.They do have a auto, but they both are older and can be confused at times".

"It's a very risky and very serious situation". He had tweeted about 200 times by Friday morning regarding the Camp Fire and people and pets reported missing or found, including some of their home addresses for use with the Red Cross registry.

The fire was the fiercest of several wind-driven blazes across California on Thursday, during one of the state's worst years for wildfires.

The fire is being driven west by 35 miles per hour (56 kmh) winds, fire officials said.
