At least 6 dead in California wildfires; ‘Pretty much the community… is destroyed’
A powerful wildfire in Northern California incinerated most of a town of about 30,000 people with flames that moved so fast there was nothing firefighters could do, authorities said Friday. Six people died, including five who were found in their burned-out vehicles. Only a day after it began, the blaze near the town of Paradise had grown to nearly 110 square miles (280 square kilometers) and was burning completely out of control.
