Tens of thousands of people were ordered to evacuate a fast-moving wildfire that exploded in size today, threatening several Northern California communities.

The Redding Record-Searchlight reports that the evacuations have resulted in gridlock traffic on Skyway, the main route connecting Paradise and Chico, as people attempt to flee the area. "We were able to get them home pretty quick", he said. McLean said that by the middle of the day, there was so much smoke in the air, it looked like it was nighttime.

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. He "knocked on doors, yelled and screamed" to alert as many residents as possible, Bernacett said.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company said about 14,000 residents of Butte and Plumas counties were without power due to fire activity and requests from firefighters to cut electricity in certain areas for safety, Sacramento Bee reported. Cal Fire said dozens of resources have been called in from elsewhere in the state, as firefighters work to contain the quick-moving blaze.

Videos and photos on social media show thick, opaque smoke wafting over the ridges toward town.

Gina Oviedo said there was fire everywhere as she got out of the town of Paradise about 180 miles (290 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco on Thursday.

The sheriff confirmed reports that evacuees had to abandon their vehicles. "Once it got going it picked up very rapidly".

The entire town of Paradise was under evacuation as several homes in the area became engulfed in the fire, Cal Fire Public Information Officer Scott McClean said at a press conference Thursday.

'Every engine that we could put on the fire is on the fire right now, and more are coming, ' he said. "The message I want to get out is if you can evacuate, you need to evacuate", Honea said.

A wildfire in Northern California has grown to almost 8 square miles (20 square kilometers) as officials rush to evacuate residents.

Smoke from the wind-driven fire, which started Thursday morning, can be seen from as far away as 150 miles.

The strong winds seen in the Bay Area also pose a danger by enabling the spread of fire, according to May.

The Adventist Health Feather River Hospital in Paradise evacuated all its patients and staff, given its close proximity to the fire, and transported them safely to hospitals in neighboring towns, Jill Kinney, an Adventist Health spokeswoman told the Associated Press.

Evacuated hospital patients are being taken to hospitals throughout the region.
