HORNBROOK, Calif. (AP) — A wildfire raging through drought-stricken timber and brush near California’s border with Oregon killed one person and destroyed multiple structures as it burns largely out of control, authorities said Friday.
No other details were released about the death blamed on the fire that threatened 300 homes near Hornbook, a town of 250 people about 14 miles (22 kilometers) south of the Oregon border. It’s not clear the flames burned homes or other structures like barns.
The article goes on to state the following:
It was one of dozens of fires across the dry American West, fueled by rising temperatures and gusty winds that were expected to last through the weekend. Heat spreading from Southern California into parts of Arizona, Nevada and Utah threatened to worsen flames that have forced thousands of people to evacuate and destroyed hundreds of homes across the West.

A look at the destruction caused by the #KlamathonFire. The fire started yesterday at just 50 acres, but winds have driven it to burn more than 8,000. The towns of Hornbrook and Hilt in Northern California have been evacuated. Live looks coming tonight on @ktvl at 5 &6. pic.twitter.com/phtaflOVYq
