Kinkade fire: earthquake rattles those fleeingTens of thousands of residents who evacuated a sprawling Northern California wildfire fueled by high winds and drought conditions were rocked by another slap from Mother Nature on Monday when a magnitude 3.3 earthquake rattled the area.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported from the temblor, centered a few miles from the roaring Kincade Fire, that struck at 1:10 a.m. The fire itself remained just 5% contained as it chewed through more than 100 square miles and destroyed or damaged over 120 buildings.

Another 80,000 homes, businesses and other buildings were threatened by the blaze that accounted for most of the state's 200,000 evacuees.
