Fast-moving wildfire destroys homes in N. California
    2017-August-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A FAST-MOVING wildfire destroyed several homes and forced the evacuation of residents in Northern California, the United States, on Tuesday, local media and fire officials said.

The fire started at 1:15 p.m. and burned 1,000 acres (405 hectares) in Butte County, about 135 kilometers north of Sacramento, according to information on the Cal Fire website. At least nine houses were destroyed, local media reported.

Photos on social media showed the fire turning houses into ash as smoke billowed into the sky and flames ripped through trees and vegetation.

A mandatory evacuation order was placed on residents who live in the remote area. It is unclear how many residents were evacuated. Two shelters were opened for displaced residents, local media reported.

Since the beginning of the year, wildfires in the U.S. West have burned more than 6.8 million acres, about 50 percent more than during the same time period in 2016.
