Scott McLean, a spokesman for the crews battling the Carr Fire, says the blaze is “taking everything down in its path.” He says the fire has burned dozens of homes in the communities of Shasta, Keswick and the west side of Redding, a city of about 92,000 people. McLean says the situation is “very dynamic” and that it’s “a heck of a fight.” He says an unknown number of firefighters and civilians have burns but couldn’t elaborate. No deaths have been reported. The 45-square-mile fire that began Monday tripled in size overnight Thursday amid scorching temperatures, low humidity and windy conditions.
