At least 5 killed in California wildfires
LOS ANGELES — At least five people have been found dead in their burned-out vehicles when an explosive wildfire swept through the Northern California town of Paradise, sheriff’s officials said Friday.
The Butte County Sheriff’s Office said officials located five bodies inside a vehicle overcome by the Camp Fire.
The fire also injured three firefighters but the total casualty was not yet clear.
Evacuation orders included the entire city of Malibu, which is home to 13,000, among them some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
The fire, which sparked Thursday, burnt 70,000 acres with 5 percent containment as of 10:30 am Friday local time, according to media reports.
Only a day after it began, the fire near the town of Paradise had almost quadrupled in size to nearly 285 square kilometres.

Kim Kardashian, Alyssa Milano and Melissa Etheridge were among thousands fleeing from their homes in and around Malibu from a separate fire burning north of Los Angeles.
