'Ominous' piece of burnt paper descends from sky amid fast-moving Calif. blaze

Massive wind-fueled fire threatens NorCal town of Paradise PARADISE EVACUATED: Fast-Growing Butte County Fire Has Already Burned 5000 Acres

The fire has burned 20,000 acres and is not contained.

A red flag warning is Cal Fire's most serious caution.

Plumes of smoke loom in the sky several miles away, seen behind a home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., as a wind-driven wildfire known as the Hill fire threatens the area late Thursday afternoon, November 4, 2018. He was wrong. It was the flush of the Camp Fire around the town that made him panic: "I was waving down people just anyone on the road just help me because I didn't have a auto or nothing".

On social media many people posted anxious messages about elderly relatives who lived near the fire and were missing, urging authorities to assist them in evacuating. "I don't know. When I left it was all on fire".

Voluntary evacuations of 75,000 homes were called for because of the Woolsey Fire that included parts of Thousand Oaks in Ventura County northwest of Los Angeles, the site of a mass shooting incident this week in which 12 people were killed. Witnesses reported seeing homes, supermarkets, businesses, restaurants, schools and a retirement home up in flames.

Residents of Concow, California, were asked to evacuate as the Camp Fire that erupted Thursday morning in Northern California.

Cal Fire Capt. Scott McLean said Paradise is no longer standing. He estimated that a couple of thousand structures were destroyed in the town about 180 miles (290 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco.

The fire was reported shortly after daybreak in a rural area. Within six hours, it had grown to more than 69 square kilometres, Gaddie said.

The fast-moving fire forced startled residents trying to evacuate to abandon their vehicles and flee the town by foot, according to the AP, citing Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea.

"It's a very unsafe and very serious situation", Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said. "We're doing everything we can to get people out of the affected areas". "The town center is completely on the ground".

Return to oil production cuts in 2019 can not be ruled out - OPEC
South Korea has averaged over 200,000 bpd of oil imports from Iran so far this year, down from around 350,000 bpd in 2017. The bans had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Residents described fleeing their homes and then getting stuck on gridlocked roads as flames approached, sparking explosions and toppling utility poles.

Percifield said that he drove off the road a few times in the low visibility conditions but eventually made it to a meadow that is maintained for residents to gather in the event of fires.

"'We're working very hard to get people out". "They were abandoned because traffic was so bad, backed up for hours".

The smoke of the rapidly growing blaze could be seen for miles.

"We're getting them on other vehicles with room".

The Adventist Health Feather River hospital in town caught fire, as firefighters battled the flames, Lillis wrote.

"It's very chaotic", said Officer Ryan Lambert of the California Highway Patrol. The department said 30,000 people had been evacuated in the area and as many as 30,000 homes were threatened. Her grandmother, who is in her 70s and lives alone, never showed up up at a meeting spot in Chico, though.

"My husband tried his best to get everybody out. God help us!", Shary Bernacett said.

Acting Gov. Gavin Newsom requested a Presidential Emergency Declaration to aid with multiple fires burning in California.
