A wildfire that chased some 6 Nike Epic React Flyknit Azul Baratas ,000 people from homes, vacation cabins and campgrounds in the mountains of Southern California roared through dry brush and timber for a fourth day on Thursday as crews battled to keep flames away from popular resort areas.

The blaze erupted on Monday afternoon about 100 miles east of Los Angeles in the scenic but rugged San Jacinto Mountains overlooking Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and several smaller low-lying desert towns.

No injuries have been reported, but authorities say seven mountain residences, including three mobile homes Nike Epic React Flyknit Blancas Fusion Baratas , have been destroyed, along with five commercial structures, about a dozen outbuildings and several vehicles.

Authorities on Wednesday ordered the evacuation of the mile-high resort area of Idyllwild, along with the adjacent village of Fern Valley and all the parks and campgrounds in the vicinity as the blaze burned largely unchecked.

Several smaller communities in the area had already been evacuated during the first three days of the fire.

The latest evacuation notices brought to roughly 6,000 the total number of residents Mujer Nike Epic React Flyknit Gris Baratas , vacationers and campers displaced by the so-called Mountain Fire, said Steve Gut, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service.

Gut said the blaze was moving in different directions but that flames were still several miles from the outskirts of Idyllwild, a popular mountain getaway known for its hiking, rock climbing Mujer Nike Epic React Flyknit Triple Negras Baratas , horseback riding and music scene.

Fire incident commander Jeanne Pincha-Telley told a news conference in Idyllwild that one flank of the blaze had reached to within 2 miles of the extreme southern edge of Palm Springs at the foot of the mountain. Palm Springs itself was not under evacuation.

Pincha-Telley said the towering column of smoke and cinders pouring skyward from the blaze might complicate efforts to contain the flames as hot embers carried aloft could ignite new spot fires in the area.

In the next two days, she said, that column is "predicted to go right over the top of this town."

By early Thursday, the fire had charred some 2,800 acres of drought-parched chaparral and timber Mujer Nike Epic React Flyknit Blancas Baratas , much of it in steep, remote wilderness terrain inside the San Bernardino National Forest.

That was more than three times the acreage reported burned two days earlier.

With nearly 3,000 firefighters, 17 water-dropping helicopters and 10 air tankers assigned to it, the blaze ranked as one of the most severe of more than a dozen large wildfires that crews were battling to contain in several western states Nike Air Max 2 Uptempo Baratas , according to the National Interagency Fire Center in Idaho.

Experts say this year could see one of the worst U.S. fire seasons on record. In recent weeks, a Colorado wildfire ranked as that state's most destructive on record ravaged more than 500 homes and killed two people. In Arizona, 19 members of an elite "hotshots" crew died while battling a separate fire on June 30.

In California, as of Thursday morning, firefighters had managed to carve containment lines around 15 percent of the Mountain Fire's perimeter. The cause of the blaze remained under investigation Nike SB Zoom Blazer Baratas , authorities said.

DHAKA, July 4 (Xinhua) -- The Red Cross Society of China has made a cash donation to help Bangladesh's communities affected by the flooding that has stranded hundreds of thousands of people.

The Chinese embassy in Bangladesh's capital on Tuesday handed over a cheque of 100,000 U.S. dollars on behalf of the Red Cross Society of China to the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society.

BMW Mozharul Huq, secretary general of the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society, received the cheque from Chen Wei Nike Zoom VaporFly Baratas , deputy chief of mission at the Chinese embassy in Dhaka at a handing over ceremony.

Flooding sparked by heavy seasonal rains and onrush of water from hills across the Indian borders have affected parts of Bangladesh.

Authorities have evacuated residents of scores of villages to higher ground in a number of districts that are prone to torrential rains between June and September.

Floods have caused widespread damage to habitation, crops, roads and highways across vast areas of the country.

The donated fund will be distributed among 2,000 flood-hit families in Bangladesh's norther Netrokona district and northeastern Kishorganj district, Huq told Xinhua.

Huq considers this funding critical resource that guarantees life-saving interventions in support of affected communities in the districts.

"I think this cash assistance will help meet the basic needs of the most vulnerable particularly those who are still living in temporary camps."

On behalf of the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society Nike Zoom Vapor Street Flyknit Baratas , Huq expressed sincere thanks and appreciation both to the Chinese government and the Red Cross Society of China to stand by the Bangladeshi flood victims.

The Chinese embassy said the Chinese side is willing to provide assistance for relief work according to Bangladesh's needs.

Plight of millions of people in Bangladesh, criss-crossed by more than 230 rivers, mounts every year as the low-lying South Asian country experiences almost every year seasonal floods whether small or big.

More than 500,000 people in a dozen districts in the country's north and northeast have now been marooned as their homes have gone under up to waist high water.

The residents left their houses wading through flooded roads or on boats in search for shelter or a dry ground to live temporarily.

Experts said Bangladesh, bordering the Bay of Bengal Nike Air Zoom Generation Baratas , has become more vulnerable in recent time to climate change-related phenomena like cyclones, flooding, as its capacity to protect its people and land is feeble.

Three months of sustained floods in 1988 left several hundred people dead and caused millions of dollars of damage.

The country was again ravaged by major flooding. Wholesale Jerseys Online Wholesale NHL T-Shirts Wholesale Hoodie Wholesale NBA Hoodie Wholesale Hats Wholesale NHL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Hoodie Cheap NBA T-Shirts Cheap Jerseys
