Wildfire destroys California town

(AP) The Latest on California wildfires (all times local):

A fire official says the Northern California town of Paradise has been “pretty much” destroyed.

CalFire Capt. Scott McLean says a wind-whipped wildfire destroyed thousands of structures but he said they won’t have an exact count until they can get into the area.

The town of about 27,000 people 180 miles (290 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco was evacuated. An Associated Press photographer found businesses and homes leveled or in flames, including a liquor store and gas station.
