Washington, August 02 (QNA) - A wildfire in US state of California has killed at least two people and forced thousands to evacuate.
The McKinney Fire broke out Friday afternoon in the Klamath National Forest near the California-Oregon border and has since ripped through more than 55,000 acres, advancing on homes and forcing nearly 2,000 residents to evacuate Saturday, authorities said.
The blaze has become California's largest wildfire so far this year, Cal Fire Capt. Chris Bruno told CNN.
Two people were found dead inside a vehicle that burned in the path of the fire, the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office said.
About 2,500 people remained under evacuation orders. (QNA)
