McKinney fire rages along the Northern California border

The McKinney Fire is burning through heavy, drought-stressed timber on steep terrain in the Klamath National Forest west of Yreka, said Caroline Quintanilla, a US Forest Service spokeswoman.

It’s shaping up to be the deadliest fire this season in California, threatening multiple communities. The US Forest Service estimated the fire had grown to 51,468 acres with 0% containment as of Sunday morning.
