'Volatile,' 'incredibly dangerous': Images of raging flames as California wildfires burn

FIRE PIC 1 CAL FIRE BUTTEcredit Cal Fire Butte County

The Associated Press said the Ventura County Fire Department had ordered evacuation of some communities in the path of the flames - not far from the site of a deadly mass shooting at a bar in the city of Thousand Oaks.

'Every engine that we could put on the fire is on the fire right now, and more are coming, ' he said.

California is experiencing one of its worst fire years ever, with 251,610 hectares burned through Sunday in areas covered by Cal Fire, almost twice the amount during the same period of 2017 and almost triple the five-year average.

The Camp fire swept through Paradise, California, on Thursday, with officials saying at least 1,000 structures were destroyed.

Some 20,000 people have been ordered to evacuate, according to the Houston Chronicle, and multiple highways in the area have been closed.

A statue sits on the deck of a burning home as the Camp Fire moves through the area on November 8, 2018 in Paradise, California. "There are dozens of strike teams that we're bringing in from all parts of the state".

Fire officials were working on a plan to rescue patients from a hospital after officials tried to evacuate them but had to turn back because of gridlocked traffic. It's very surreal. Things always work out, but the unknown is a little scary. Within six hours, it had grown to more than 26 square miles (69 square kilometers), Gaddie said.

Breaking Bad Movie Reportedly On The Way, To Film This Month
Filming is about to begin in New Mexico, where the original TV series was set and shot, according to The Albuquerque Journal . It's unclear if the movie would be another prequel, like Better Call Saul - or a follow-up of where they left the series.

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

May said the low humidity and the dryness of trees and brush are among the reasons for the Camp Fire and also pose a potential danger in Berkeley.

A hospital and several schools were evacuated as thick grey smoke and ash filled the sky above Paradise and could be seen from miles away.

At the hospital with the stranded patients, some buildings caught fire and were damaged, but the main facility, Adventist Health Feather River Hospital, was not, spokesperson Jill Kinney said.

More than 40 patients were evacuated to other facilities.
