California's Carr Fire Jumps Sacramento River; Blamed For 2 Deaths

California fire'tornado kills two firefighters thousands fleeMore

Firefighters regroup while battling the Carr Fire in Shasta, Calif., on Thursday, July 26, 2018.

New evacuation orders have been issued for the deadly Carr Fire burning near Redding.

Weber also said that the injured firefighters weren't necessarily injured by flames alone. The Mercy Medical Center in Redding evacuated its neonatal intensive care unit, it said in a statement.

Another fire around Yosemite National Park in central California has grown to 44,000 acres. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the two firefighters that lost their lives yesterday battling the same fire" said Weber.

The blaze has killed two so far - a bulldozer operator and a firefighter - and has burned three firefighters, destroyed dozens of homes and forced thousands of terrified residents to flee, the AP reported.

Another 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.

There have now been three fire-related deaths in the state in recent weeks.

Residents who gathered their belongings in haste described a chaotic and congested getaway as the embers blew up to a mile ahead of flames and the fire leaped across the wide Sacramento River and torched subdivisions in Redding, a city of 92,000 about 100 miles south of the OR border.

On Thursday night local time (early morning BST), the fire suddenly exploded, growing more and more out of control.

If the leading party fails to gain the required number of seats, they would be forced to form a coalition to assume power. He said he had joined politics because he wanted to make Pakistan a nation "as envisioned by Jinnah".

Two other firefighters - a bulldozer operator and a city of Redding fireman - have been killed fighting the Carr Fire over the last 24 hours.

A wildfire in a rural northern region of California has tripled in size overnight and more evacuations have been ordered.

"Right now, we are being evacuated", anchor Allison Woods said during Thursday night's broadcast.

The fire agency warned that these conditions included forecasts calling for high temperatures and ongoing dry weather. "We are going to leave the station because is now unsafe to be here".

He says that winds were so extreme Thursday that embers traveled up to a mile ahead of the flames.

Governor Jerry Brown declares a State of Emergency in response to the Carr Fire.

In an interview early Friday on "Good Morning America", Damante said the "quickness" and "volatility" of the blaze was unlike anything she had ever seen before.

32-year-old Brandon McGlover was arrested Thursday in connection with the fire and is being held on five-counts of arson.

The season has followed a particularly destructive and deadly fire year in the state -in 2017 almost 9,000 wildfires tore through 1.2m acres, taking down close to 11,000 structures.
