The Carr fire has so far burned down 657 homes and damaged another 145. 217 other properties have been destroyed and 30 damaged, Cal Fire reported.

Another 5,000 structures are threatened by the fire that has resulted in nearly 40,000 people becoming refugees with many of them likely to be displaced for months.

“Extreme fire conditions continued today while Firefighters worked to build control lines. Shifting winds, dry fuels, and steep drainages contributed to rapid growth.

“As we continue supporting our partners in caring for our community we encounter new and ever-changing needs and requests. Right now we have an immediate need for towels.
