A wildfire swept through a Northern California town Thursday, destroying several thousand buildings, a California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection official said. The 28-square-mile Camp Fire devastated the town of Paradise, forcing all 27,000 residents to evacuate. Butte County Cal Fire Chief Darren Read said at a news conference that at least two firefighters and multiple residents were injured. But with firefighters unable to control the flames after the first day, officials could not give an exact count of the wounded.
