California wildfires are burning again, with the Camp Fire near Chico the latest large fire to erupt in Northern California.

Shari Bernacett said she and her husband tried to get people to leave the mobile home park they manage in Paradise and had minutes to evacuate.

"The whole hill's on fire", she said while crying.

On Thursday afternoon, California fire officials say the fire had expanded to about 18,000 acres, but its true size is hard to pinpoint because of heavy smoke, which can be seen from miles away.

Neighbourhoods, schools and hospitals have been evacuated while some residents in the town of Paradise were trapped by the flames, officials say.

BFD spokesperson Keith May said BFD is sending one engine to assist the City of Oakland as its fire department responds to a fire on Highway 13, just south of Joaquin Miller Road. Residents ― and even two police officers ― have also reported leaving their vehicles and evacuating on foot after being met with blackout conditions and gridlocked traffic on the county's roads and highways. He said rescuers were trying to put them in other vehicles. 'There are dozens of strike teams that we're bringing in from all parts of the state'. It's very surreal. Things always work out, but the unknown is a little scary.

Officials said the blaze has consumed more than 26 square miles so far.

"The blaze is being driven by fairly strong winds", Carhart said.

The dry heat and limited rainfall - in some places, no rainfall at all - contributed to the fire's spread.

Video footage taken by ABC Redding affiliate KRCR showed the hospital surrounded by thick smoke as the fire illuminated the darkened sky in the background.

Some of the hospital's 'outbuildings, ' such as out-patient clinics caught fire and were damaged but the main hospital was not, said Kinney.

The National Weather Service issued red flag warnings for fire dangers in many areas of the state, saying low humidity and strong winds were expected to continue through Friday evening.

Hospital spokeswoman Jill Kinney said all patients were evacuated.

More than 40 patients were evacuated to other facilities.
