Fire near Oregon-California border jumps I-5

At 11 p.m., flames were moving primary south along Fairview Avenue and west toward Carlo Drive, although there also was fire east of Fairview, Eliason said.

A fire broke out in the hills above Goleta late Friday night, causing mandatory evacuations in the surrounding areas.

The wildfire, which started June 23, left one person injured and 22 structures destroyed.

CAL FIRE said the evacuations came into effect in Hornbrook at 4.40 p.m. local time (7.40 p.m. EDT) and an evacuation shelter was established at Jackson Street School in Yreka.

Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni says there's no wind at all Saturday morning - a far different situation than Friday night when the fire erupted and was spread wildly by 50 miles per hour (80 kph) gusts.

The blaze started Thursday and is spreading fast, and about 750 people have been evacuated, fire officials said.

Some 350 firefighters were taking advantage of a period of light winds early on Saturday to contain as much as possible of the blaze, which has burned through 50 to 80 acres (20 to 32 hectares) and damaged or destroyed 20 buildings, fire officials said. Firefighters had begun inspecting the fire zone, which covers an area almost three times the size of San Francisco.

The Statesman Journal reported that the flames had spread across 5,000 acres by the evening.

Wildfires rip through Southern California, threatening Alpine, Santa Barbara, Camp Pendleton, and San Bernardino, amid scorching temperatures.

Additional information on Cal Fire's website. Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey told the Redding Record Searchlight that the decedent was discovered inside a burned structure.

A Utah fire that burned 90 structures and forced the evacuation of more than 1,100 people in a mountain area near a popular fishing reservoir was growing on Friday, but fire officials hoped to control it soon.

The state fires are among 60 large blazes burning in 13 states, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.
