Billowing smoke and raging flames spread across California as wildfires in both northern and southern parts of the state injured people, forced evacuations and engulfed houses.

The Camp Fire has scorched over 28 square miles in Butte County, which is about 90 miles north of Sacramento, according to Cal Fire. Fire officials said some structures have been destroyed in addition to injuries.

In Southern California, the Hill Fire broke out Thursday afternoon and grew to 8,000 to 10,000 acres while jumping a major highway. Smoke from the fire could be seen from the scene of the mass shooting at a Thousand Oaks bar that left 12 people dead.

Here's a look at images and videos of the flames:
