CALIFORNIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two wildfires burning several acres about eight-miles apart in northeast California are the focus of state and federal firefighters.

The two are just part of 14 other wildfires burning in the state.

They started within a day of each other in the Lassen National Forest and have expanded into private property, scorching at nearly 58,000 acres.

One of the blazes has destroyed eight homes and forced the evacuation of a small nursing home.

Three small neighboring communities in Shasta County were also asked to leave Saturday night.
