New Delhi: A fast-moving wildfire across Northern California's Butte County burned a hospital, hundreds of homes and left five dead on Friday. Five people were found dead in Paradise after their bodies were recovered from vehicles that were overcome by the flames. Additional reports of deaths in the fire zone have not been confirmed as of now, The Washington Post quoted a statement from the Butte County Sherrif's office as saying.
The first firefighters to arrive found 10 to 15 acres burning. Wind gusts of nearly 50 mph helped speed the fire's growth. The situation is gradually getting worse with time.
