Another blaze just west of that area, dubbed the Hill Fire, topped 10,000 acres on Thursday. - More than 18,000 acres have been scorched in a matter of hours burning with it a hospital, a gas station and dozens of homes.

A fast-moving wildfire is rapidly spreading through northeastern California, growing to over 16,000 acres in under 12 hours and leading acting Governor Gavin Newsom to declare a state of emergency.

Flames consume a vehicle and building as the Camp Fire tears through Paradise, Calif., today.

"By the time we got out, the flames were a half mile away from the school".

The flames have been driven by strong winds and dry conditions.

On Thursday afternoon, California fire officials said the fire had expanded to about 18,000 acres, but its true size is hard to pinpoint because of heavy smoke, which can be seen from miles away.

According to Sacramento Bee reporter Ryan Lillis, some 60 to 70 people were awaiting an emergency evacuation at a Walgreen's in Paradise.

"Firefighters continue to actively engage the fire in order to protect life and property", the Chico Fire Department said in a tweet.

A red flag warning is Cal Fire's most serious caution.

There are reports of fatalities but Police say those reports have not yet been verified.

Evacuation notices were set for homes on the east side of Chico, a city of about 93,000 people situated about 90 miles (145 km) north of Sacramento.

And a fast-moving wildfire that ravaged a Northern California town Thursday sent residents racing to escape on roads that turned into tunnels of fire as thick smoke darkened the daytime sky, wiping out what a Cal Fire official said was a couple of thousand structures.

As people fled in cars, some abandoned their vehicles, running from encroaching flames as they held babies and pets in their arms, said Gina Oviedo, who described a devastating scene as she evacuated the town of Paradise.

TV personality Adrienne Janic said on Twitter that firefighters were using her home as a command centre. "The message I want to get out is if you can evacuate, you need to evacuate", Honea said.

The Woolsey Fire, the blaze now causing the most concern for firefighters, was up to 7,500 acres around 1:30 a.m. local time, according to the Ventura County Fire Department.

The Adventist Health Feather River Hospital in Paradise evacuated all its patients and staff, given its close proximity to the fire, and transported them safely to hospitals in neighboring towns, Jill Kinney, an Adventist Health spokeswoman told the Associated Press.

The blaze adds to what is already one of the worst fire years ever in California.
