California wildfire destroys 30 homes, hundreds more threatened

Published: 09.10.13, 23:50 / Israel News

A fast-moving wildfire ripped through rolling hills and ranch land in rural northern California on Tuesday, after destroying 30 homes overnight and prompting more than 500 area residents to evacuate, fire officials said.

 

The so-called Clover Fire, which broke out on Monday afternoon, has already scorched some 7,400 acres near the rural community of Happy Valley in Shasta County, some 200 miles north of San Francisco, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. (Reuters)
