A wildfire in Northern California exploded in size over the weekend, triggering evacuations and becoming the state’s largest wildfire so far this year, according to Cal Fire.
Two people were found dead inside a vehicle that burned in the path of the McKinney Fire, the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office said.
The two were found Sunday morning on a residential driveway along Doggett Creek Road near Highway 96, the sheriff’s office posted Monday morning on Facebook.
Officials have not released any further information on the two people found.
