Fire, california

A newly ignited fire in Northern California has forced thousands of residents to evacuate their homes as the US fights 96 large active fires that have scorched nearly two million acres. The River Fire, raging in Nevada and Placer counties, has destroyed or damaged 80 structures. Firefighters have been frustrated by residents not heeding evacuation orders, officials say. California Governor Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency in three northern counties because of the River Fire.
