Winds gusting to 40 mph are pushing flames into the town of Weed in Siskiyou County and creating dangerous firefighting conditions.
Sheriff's deputies went door-to-door to evacuate the town of Weed. Nearby Carrick and Lake Shastina, and Edgewood were placed under mandatory evacuations. At least 100 structures have been damaged and 350 acres have burned. Fire crews say the blaze is 15 percent contained.
Evacuation centers have been set up at the Siskiyou County Fairground and Mt. Shasta High School.
