Thou­sands told to flee wild­fire

Tampa Bay Times - - Nation & World -

A mas­sive plume rises from the Camp Fire in the Feather River Canyon and wafts over the Sacra­mento Val­ley on Thurs­day. More than 23,000 peo­ple were told to evac­u­ate as the fast­mov­ing wild­fire grew to over 18,000 acres. The blaze burned through Par­adise, a town of about 26,000, where traf­fic grid­lock forced some peo­ple to leave their ve­hi­cles and flee on foot. There were re­ports of in­juries, but no num­bers were avail­able.
