A Northern California hospital says it has evacuated its patients because of a fast-moving wildfire. McLean said that by the middle of the day, there was so much smoke in the air, it looked like it was nighttime. "The wind that was predicted came and just wiped it out".

Residents of Butte County ― and particularly Paradise, California, and its surrounding towns ― have been ordered to evacuate and take shelter in local churches in the neighboring town of Chico. The extent of the injuries and damage was not immediately known.

Butte County CalFire Chief Darren Read said at a news conference that two firefighters and multiple residents were injured.

"We're getting them on other vehicles with room".

"It's a very unsafe and very serious situation", Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told The Associated Press.

"Luckily, the fire broke out early enough that there were only a few students there and we had a plan". As of Thursday afternoon, evacuations were added for several counties as the Camp Fire continued to pick up speed in the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

"This fire is very unsafe, please evacuate if asked to do so!" the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) tweeted.

She and her husband grabbed their dog, jumped in their pickup truck and drove through flames before getting to safety on Highway 99, she said.

He confirmed reports that evacuees had to abandon their vehicles as they fled the scene.

"Right now, Mother Nature is in charge", Bennett said. 'There are dozens of strike teams that we're bringing in from all parts of the state'.

"I'm scared for them", said Freeman, who lives in Clements, California. "Once it got going it picked up very rapidly". "We tried to get all the nondigital things that we could - you know, stuff that couldn't be replaced", Peete said.

The wildfire was reported around daybreak. Within roughly six hours, the fire had grown to more than 26 square miles (69 square kilometers), said Gaddie.

By 8 a.m. Thursday morning, Paradise resident Tanah Clunies-Ross said she could not see her auto from her front door through the cloud of smoke.

Weather forecasts showed numerous red flag warnings and wind alerts in the area Thursday into Friday. "Everything is a very receptive fuel bed".

Butte County supervisor Doug Teeter said authorities used a bulldozer to push abandoned cars out the way to reach Feather River Hospital and evacuate patients as flames engulfed its old wing and the roof of the emergency department.
