The McKinney Fire burning in northern California grew dramatically on Saturday, July 30, according to officials.
The Forest Service for Klamath National Forest in Siskiyou County reported that “cumulus clouds in the fire area have potential to exacerbate fire behavior.”
This footage, taken from I-50, was shared by Jess Barron who said she “woke up with ash on the car” and wasn’t “sure which fire it was from.” As of July 30, California had at least five active fires.
