Northern California's Dixie Fire continued its relentless march across the region, burning homes and wildlands just outside the town of Taylorsville on Friday.

An estimated 6,170 firefighters alone are battling the blaze which is being fuelled by hot and dry weather.

The fire has ravaged more than 800 square miles (more than 2,000 square kilometers) - an area larger than the city of London - and continued to threaten more than a dozen rural and forest communities.
