Cal Fire officials were not available to provide details about the injuries to civilians and firefighters, or how much damage the blaze had caused. That fire, which destroyed five homes, is believed to have been sparked by arson.
He said many people in Redding didn't seem prepared for the blaze to reach their city. Residents along SR 299 west of Trinity Mountain Rd to the base of Buckhorn Summit are also under evacuation order.
An evacuation center has been opened up at Shasta College as of Thursday.
The blaze has left residents fleeing for their lives as flames burn buildings and knock out power, fire officials said. "This fire is out of control!", the agency wrote. "The Cranston Fire is under Unified Command between the USFS San Bernardino National Forest, CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department, Idyllwild Fire Protection District and the Riverside County Sheriffs Office". One person died, a private hire bulldozer operator, and three firefighters have been injured.
There have now been three fire-related deaths in the state in recent weeks.
Late Thursday, crews found the body of a bulldozer operator who was hired privately to clear vegetation in the blaze's path, McLean said.
He said the fire behavior was so erratic, there were tornadoes within the fire "tossing around equipment, blowing windows out of Cal Fire pickup trucks".

William Blodgett of Idyllwild said he couldn't get home because of the fire and had to wait along with others at a gas station in nearby Mountain Center - until the fire hopped a highway and began to move in his direction.
