Now to the wild first burning out west. Ravaging hundreds of acres. Aditi Roy sis on the scene. Good morning. Reporter: Good morning, George. This is one of the homes completely decimated by the fire. I'm standing in what was once the porch of this home. These chairs, among the few things left intact. This storm forced more than 1,000 people to leave their home. The Courtney wildfire consumed 320 acres overnight and let tletenning as many as 400 structures. More than 20 already destroyed. These cars and homes, scorched. The frequency is disturbing. We just had the fire last week. Reporter: Spreading to highways, bringing the traffic to the stand still. I'm not going through that. Reporter: 11 crews tackling the flames from the ground and sky. Dropping relief to prevent further damage. The 100-degree temperatures are aiding in the spread of the fire, along with the winds we're getting. Reporter: Close to 400 firefighters racing to extinguish the blaze. Only 20% contained. The conditions not helping matters. That's the entire subdivision there in the middle of the smoke right now. Reporter: Just north in el Dorado county, firefighters struggling to contain the king fire, more than 2500 acres and threatening 500 homes. That blaze only 10% contained. Here in oakhurst, this gutter that was one on the roof is now charred on the ground. Officials believe someone started the Courtney fire. They're not sure if it was intentional or accidental.
