Northern California wildfire destroys 10 homes, forces 4,000 to flee

Northern California wildfire destroys 10 homes, forces 4,000 to fleeA wildfire destroyed at least 10 homes and forced some 4,000 of people to flee their homes in two Northern California towns Sunday as flames jumped a road and moved into populated areas.

Officials confirmed 10 homes were burned, although eyewitnesses could see many more.

The fire broke out Saturday afternoon and grew to nearly 5 square miles as firefighters struggled to get a handle on the largely out-of-control blaze amid triple-digit temperatures and windy conditions.

The fire was throwing embers and spreading rapidly because of parched conditions brought on by the state's historic drought, officials said.
