Three wildfires gained momentum in California early Friday morning, USA Today reports, spurring major evacuations. As of this morning, the three fires "were at zero percent containment."
The details: The Camp Fire is in the northern part of California, and has "pretty much ... destroyed" the town of Paradise, a community of 27,000, Cal Fire Capt. Scott McLean said, while the Hill and Woolsey fires are in Ventura County. At least five people died after their vehicle became engulfed in flames in Paradise, CNN reports citing the Butte County Sheriff's Department.
