Firefighters say the massive Caldor Fire in Northern California will likely take another two weeks to contain, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
The wildfire has already consumed over 191,000 acres and destroyed over 600 buildings, fire officials said Tuesday.
Over 33,000 structures are threatened by the blaze that has prompted a series of evacuations orders and warnings in the area and caused gridlock on nearby highways as residents fled.
Five people – three first responders and two civilians – have been injured in the fire.
