>> The deadly wildfires raging in California could get worse in the coming days.>>
]>> The National Weather Service predicting a return of extreme weather conditions, starting Thursday evening. Strong winds of up to 25 miles per hour, temperatures above 95 degrees, and extremely low humidity, all conspiring to bring more devastation to the Redding area.
Where the Carr Fire has killed six people, destroyed more than 1,500 structures, and remains just 35% contained. Reuters' photographer, Fred Greaves, is covering the inferno near Lakeport, where two wildfires are burning just miles from each other.>> It's just kind of chaotic and uncomfortable. It's over 100 degrees.
>> Thousands have already evacuated and Greaves says many residents who stayed put are concerned that the winds could change and charge in their direction.>> A lot of places out there, there's no power now, and then after the fires burn over the hilltops, you lose cell phone service, so they're isolated.
So when they run into me out there, they're asking me questions because they have no idea what's going on. It's hot, smoky, dusty, and it smells. There's a lot of smoke that hangs low to the ground. And you end up with smoke all over your clothes, and your car, and everything you're carrying smells like stale cigarettes and has a pretty healthy coat of ash and dust on it.
Everything takes on this kind of yellowish-orange hue, which is kinda weird to be under that for hours and hours.>> More than 3,000 firefighters are under that orange sky battling the dual fires in hopes of saving homes and lives.
