California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection is holding a news conference on Friday afternoon to give an update to the Carr Fire raging in Redding, California.

The fire already has destroyed dozens of homes, forced evacuation orders for more than 37,000 residents and is threatening nearly 5,000 homes. Fire officials say its erratic, unpredictable nature is a sign of how much peril tinder-dry California faces from wildfires.

Two firefighters have perished in the blaze.

A camera from the Market Street Bridge in downtown Redding captured a time lapse of the Carr Fire overnight.

Sacramento Bee photographer Daniel Kim and Associated Press photographer Noah Berger captured these images from the Carr Fire burning near Redding.
