"The fire is moving pretty rapidly and taking everything down in its path", he said.

Multiple power outages were reported, the city said on its website, adding that the electric utility was shutting off power in its northern areas.

The California Highway Patrol says officers have detained a motorist for questioning after people called 911 to report a suspicious vehicle near the fire's starting point in Riverside County.

The fire grew 15,000 aces overnight from Wednesday to Thursday, and by evening took on another 8,000 acres.

A residence burns as the Carr Fire tears through Shasta, California.

The fast-moving blaze has so far burned five homes.

Authorities tackling the fire included Cal Fire, the Riverside and Los Angeles County fire departments and the San Bernardino National Forest agency. "'The boat docks down there - all the way out in the water - 30 to 40 boats caught fire when the fire laid down on top of them last night and burned those up'".

Local and state fire officials were not available to confirm details of injuries.

About 100 homes were still under threat in the San Francisco Bay community of Clayton, although firefighters had stopped the progress of a small fire there after one house burned. Evacuation orders are also in place for Idyllwild.

Yosemite Valley, the scenic heart of the national park, was closed at noon Wednesday during the height of tourist season as smoke cast a pall on the region from a fire in the Sierra Nevada.

Dozens of other large blazes, including the Ferguson Fire near Yosemite National Park, are charring hundreds of thousands of acres across the Western states, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

"Emergency personnel are reporting on social media that they are stopping structure and containment efforts in north Redding in order to focus on safely evacuating all citizens". The next morning, they left for Los Angeles.

Just before dawn, the flames had gotten close enough that they were about to evacuate when the fire changed direction and began burning to the north, he said.

Officials were hoping to stem its progress Thursday by putting as many air tankers and helicopters in the air to attack the blaze as possible, especially as it was heading into steeper terrain, Beyer said.
