The deadly Carr Fire raging in Northern California has claimed at least six lives and destroyed more than 1,100 structures. The fire has scorched more than 125,000 acres and is now the sixth most destructive fire in California history, according to Cal Fire.
Residents had only a few hours to heed evacuation orders -- some just 30 minutes. Nonprofits are offering assistance for those forced to leave and help with the eventual rebuilding.
