"All residents evacuate now", the city said via Twitter.

Butte County Sheriff's Office said an evacuation ordered had been issued for the small communities of Stirling City and Inskip.

People reported much of the community of 30,000 people has gone up in flames, including homes, supermarkets, businesses, restaurants, schools and a retirement centre.

The fires started on Thursday near the Californian city of Pulga.

The Woosley Fire burns in Malibu, California, on Friday.

Rural areas fared little better. Paradise is 180 miles northeast of San Francisco.

The fire is already the fourth most destructive wildfire in state history, but those numbers are nearly certain to increase once officials survey the area more completely.

Northern California officials say investigators found five people dead in vehicles that were torched by the flames of a ferocious wildfire. "We're working very hard to get people out".

Are you in the area or have you been evacuated? Several evacuation centers were set up in nearby towns.

A trio of rapidly expanding wildfires are burning in California, marking the latest in a string of harrowing climate-related disasters in America.

Many abandoned their cars on the side of the road, fleeing on foot. "Multiple cars, vehicles left in the roadway burned out". "They were abandoned because traffic was so bad, backed up for hours".

An used vehicle dealership is seen engulfed in flames during the Camp Fire in Paradise, California, U.S. November 8, 2018.

Thick gray smoke and ash filled the sky above Paradise and could be seen from miles away.

The winds calmed down in the valley, but they were still shifting and erratic, with speeds of up to 45 miles per hour (72 kph) along ridge tops, he said.

"The whole hill's on fire", she said while crying.

Some of the hospital's 'outbuildings, ' such as out-patient clinics caught fire and were damaged but the main hospital was not, said Kinney.

Other were found in or near homes.

Chico police officer John Barker and his partner evacuated several seniors from an apartment complex.

Flames consume a home as the Camp Fire tears through Paradise. "The wind that was predicted came and just wiped it out".

"We're just hoping that our brand new home that we were hoping to move into tomorrow is not burned to the ground", Winstead said. I've linked to both of them and provided descriptions below.

In total, there are now 14 wildfires blazing in California and acting governor Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency.

The fast-moving Camp Fire has been fanned by strong winds to scorch 20,000 acres and has not been contained, the California Fire Department (Cal Fire) said.

The resort is one of the most in-demand locations in California for Hollywood stars seeking privacy and luxury, and has been home to Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt and a host of other celebrities. But winds are blamed for pushing the fire through scenic canyon communities and ridgetop homes.
