After it sparked late Wednesday night, the fire spread rapidly. More than 16,000 acres were charred through Thursday night. At one point, it was growing at a rate of 30 football fields per minute. Authorities struggled against the strong winds Thursday, and the fire remained almost entirely uncontained by nightfall, state authorities said. No injuries have been reported, but nearly 50 structures have been damaged or destroyed.
