California Wildfire: See As Electra Blaze Spreads Through Amador County

Residents have been urged to evacuate their homes as a massive wildfire rages across almost 1,000 acres of land in California, wiping out power for more than 13,000 households and threatening to destroy 100 buildings in its path. Dubbed the "Electra Fire," because it is burning along the terrain by Electra Road near Highway 49, the inferno has been growing across the arid land since July 4 with firefighters on the ground and plane tankers in the air trying to contain its "dangerous rate of spread." Firefighter podcast the Hotshot Wake Up tweeted incredible pictures and footage of the blaze and fire crews' efforts to get it under control.
