The declaration will enable officials to receive more state resources to fight the fire and for recovery.

The fire that broke out Saturday evening has forced 3,000 residents from their homes and destroyed at least 22 buildings.

Strike teams 2002C and 2870C, with crews from the Alameda County, Berkeley, Fremont, Hayward and Oakland fire departments departed the Bay Area before 5 a.m. this morning to battle the fire in eastern Lake County.

Pavlich said 16 residents spent the night in the county's evacuation center about 120 miles (193 kilometers) north of San Francisco. Erupting on the third day of summer, it served as a sobering reminder of fire's unpredictable and explosive force in a region still scarred from the worst wildfires in California history.

The Stoll Fire, also in Tehama County, had burned about 500 acres, and was 50 percent contained.

Cal Fire said the blaze was "out of control" and the threat to homes in the Spring Valley are was "imminent".

These alerts usually go up the same week something will be live, so we can assume that it'll be included in tomorrow's patch. Since friendly fire is turned on, you can even load into this map with a squad and practice combat through scrimmaging.

Reports over emergency radio late Saturday indicated the fire had doubled in size since Cal Fire's 10 p.m. assessment and had consumed homes along Spring Valley Road. Firefighters battled it in a rugged area that made it hard to get engines and other equipment up close. Evacuations have been ordered and a number of roads in the area are closed.

Last year, the county was among those ravaged by a string of fires that ripped through Northern California wine country.

Mandatory evacuations have been lifted and the American Red Cross shelter was closed for the night, according to the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office. The Red Bluff Community Center is serving as the evacuation center for this fire as well, and animals are being sheltered at Rolling Hills Casino outside of Corning.

UPDATE (Sunday, 7 a.m): The blaze grew overnight in the Spring Valley area and is being driven by low relative humidity, "erratic winds" and high temperatures, CAL FIRE said.

Residents also fled a wildfire in Shasta County.
