California firefighters thanked by 3 girls on horseback

Carr Fire

The fire was burning in federal forest land and a handful of residents in the area were warned Tuesday night to evacuate, said Mendocino County sheriff's Lt. Shannon Barney. The Ferguson Fire, which has burned 63,798 acres, is 39 percent contained.

A auto was apparently responsible for creating a spark in the area of American Highway 299 and Carr Powerhouse Road, in Whiskeytown. Firefighters increased containment of those fires to nearly 40 percent.

"People are doing everything they can, but nature is very powerful and we're not on the side of nature", Brown said.

However, authorities who had feared there might be more casualties reported Wednesday that all those who had been reported missing had been located.

More than 4,200 firefighters have spent 11 days battling the blaze, which has scorched 121,000 acres (49,000 hectares), laying waste to entire neighborhoods in the scenic Shasta-Trinity region.

First of all Wingman Hurts - Valtteri Bottas
But maybe the word wingman doesn't do him justice. 'He drove a sensational race and helped Lewis build his lead'. Mercedes missed out on a 1-2 as Bottas was overtaken by Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen with five laps to go.

The blaze, stoked by drought-parched vegetation and triple-digit temperatures, has killed six people and reduced 1,555 structures to smoldering ruins, including 10,600 homes.

Other sections of the park remained open, but "visitors are advised to drive with caution, as smoke impacts may vary", park officials said in a statement.

Thousands of firefighters were struggling Thursday to contain two vast wildfires in California, one of which has become one of the most destructive blazes in the state's history.

These areas include: Lake, Mendocino and Napa counties, where the River, Ranch and Steele fires, are still surging. The weather isn't helping: low humidity, winds, and dry conditions are challenging firefighting efforts.

More than 13,000 firefighters are battling fires with the help of crews from as far away as Florida but Brown repeated predictions from fire officials that California can expect a future of devastating fires, in part because of the changing climate.
