In Northern California, a massive wildfire tripled in size overnight amid high temperatures and dry conditions. The Delta Fire in Shasta County has consumed more than 34 square miles of trees and brush and forced the closure of Interstate 5, where some truck drivers abandoned their rigs to flee oncoming flames. The fire comes amid a record fire season in California that climate scientists say is likely exacerbated by global warming.
