Wildfire destroys 100 homes


A wind-swept wildfire in rural Northern California tore through a neighborhood and destroyed about 100 homes and other buildings, fire officials said Saturday after at least two people were injured and thousands were forced from their homes.

The Mill Fire started shortly before 1 p.m. Friday just north of Weed, a city of about 2,600 people 250 miles (402 kilometers) north of San Francisco.

The flames raced into the Lincoln Heights neighborhood where a significant number of homes burned and residents had to flee for their lives.—AP
