Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday declared a state of emergency in Lake County, where the biggest fire was raging about 120 miles (190 kilometers) north of San Francisco, a rural region particularly hard-hit by fires in recent years.

California's Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Monday that the fire in Lake County north of San Francisco is now almost 13 square miles (21 square kilometers).

About 3,000 people have been ordered to evacuate.

Residents in Shasta County, about 300 miles north of San Francisco, were also forced to flee an inferno.

Fire officials say 10 more buildings have burned and that the largest wildfire in Northern California is still growing.

The Stoll Fire, also in Tehama County, had burned about 500 acres, and was 50 percent contained. It was not affected by the 2015 Valley fire, which killed five people, destroyed more than 2,000 buildings and scorched more than 76,000 acres.

The fire broke out at 5:23 p.m. Saturday near Pawnee Road and New Long Valley Road, burning 1,000 acres before midnight.

Flames from a wildfire rise above the Spring Lakes community, near Clearlake Oaks, California. The causes of the other fires are under investigation. Around 4 p.m. Sunday, officials expanded the mandatory evacuation area past Highway 20 to the north and east of Old Long Valley Road to Round Ball Road.

"It's kind of the worst possible combination", Cox said. The Red Bluff Community Center is serving as the evacuation center for this fire as well, and animals are being sheltered at Rolling Hills Casino outside of Corning. Via scanner reports, the fire headed toward Spring Valley.

According to the Lake County Sheriff, "CalFire has requested that all remaining residents in the Spring Valley area reduce their water usage immediately in order to conserve water for fire-fighting purposes".

Moderate to extreme drought conditions affect larger areas of those four states plus parts of Nevada, California, Oregon, Oklahoma and Texas, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.
