New fire forces evacuations near Calif. town
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Fire officials say that a wildfire in California is threatening small communities in the far northern part of the state.
The fire, which started Saturday, has destroyed four homes and consumed nearly 11 square miles as it burns near the towns of Minton, Shingleton, and Viola.
State fire spokesman Daniel Berlant says 3,500 homes spread out across a rural area along the border of Tehama and Shasta counties are threatened. The fire is burning in a rugged area of thick forests about 170 miles north of Sacramento.
