The Klamathon Fire has grown to 8,000 acres and has threatened and damaged or destroyed multiple structures by Friday morning, according to the California Department of Forestry & Fire Protection.

He says that as of Saturday morning, the fire seems to be moving away from homes and other structures.

The Klamathon Fire broke out Thursday near Hornbrook, Calif., about 115 miles north of Redding, Calif. Fire officials have the blaze about 5 percent contained.

"Most of our active fires are occurring right now in the Rocky Mountain area which includes Colorado as well as the Great Basin area which includes Utah, Nevada and Idaho", Jones said.

The governor has declared states of emergency in Siskiyou, San Diego and Santa Barbara counties this week due to fires.

Evacuation updates: About 750 people have been evacuated as mandatory orders were issued for Hornbrook, Hilt, Colestin and Iron Gate Reservoir. It was 42 percent contained by Saturday morning.

No other details were released about the death blamed on the fire that threatened 300 homes near Hornbook, a town of 250 people about 22 kilometres south of the OR border.

Meanwhile, a brush fire that broke out Thursday afternoon near the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area in Irwindale, California, has scorched 15-20 acres.

Firefighters battled destructive fire Saturday that snaked through a hillside area of Goleta, one of several blazes that destroyed homes during a record-setting heat wave in Southern California. The fire has the potential to spread into the Klamath National Forest, Siskiyou National Forest and private timber lands, Cal Fire said Saturday.

Authorities said the blaze started with a house fire and gusty winds reportedly were pushing the flames.

In San Diego County, several fires erupted, including one that burned at least five homes and perhaps many more in Alpine, in foothills not far from San Diego.

"Starting Monday we're going to see a gradual cool down, as we shave just a few degrees off each day until about midweek it gets to something like normal, in the mid-90s (Fahrenheit) inland and 80s at the coast", said Jim Hayes of the NWS Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland.

The area is north of where the Thomas Fire raged last December - that blaze destroyed more than 1,000 buildings in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
