Carr Fire destroys more than 1,000 homes in Shasta County

California: Mendocino Complex Fire Explodes to 28000 Acres

The Carr Fire near Redding is now the sixth most destructive blaze in California history, having burned 115,538 acres - more than 180 square miles - destroyed 1,018 homes and killed at least six people.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Wednesday that another 440 buildings including barns and warehouses have also been destroyed by the Carr Fire.

The twin fires in Mendocino and Lake Counties, sometimes grouped as one fire by state officials, had burned more than 100 square miles and were only 10 percent contained, Cal Fire said Tuesday.

Burnt house and cars in the Keswick neighborhood of Redding, as the Carr fire continues to spreads towards the town of Douglas City near Redding, California on July 31, 2018.

Paulich says residents have been heeding evacuation orders because they have seen the destruction caused by past fires.

People in Lake County, an impoverished community of 65,000 about 110 miles north of San Francisco, know about evacuations.

"The weather has really been working with us", said Jude Olivas, a spokesman for the interagency firefighting team.


As of 7 a.m., 884 homes, four commercial structures and 348 outbuildings have been destroyed by the fire; while another 169 homes, 5 commercial structures and 51 outbuildings have been damaged. Thousands more, however, remain evacuated because of the blaze ignited July 23 by a spark from a steel wheel rim on a trailer being towed with a flat tire.

The Carr Fire has burned through almost 113,000 acres and is now considered 30 percent contained, according to Cal Fire. The Ferguson Fire, which has claimed the lives of two firefighters, had burned nearly 100 square miles and was 39 percent contained after burning for nearly three weeks.

"When the fires start, guys are pretty much ready to rock and roll". The state spent a record $758 million previous year.

"But you can't stop doing what you have to do, and you can't stop facing what you have to face", she said. If a fire is spreading and evacuations are being ordered, or if a gunman is on a school campus and hostages are being taken, Lucy (lparesh@lalate.com) has it covered.

"We're turning the corner", he said, adding that he hates "saying those things (because) this thing has made me a liar so many times". "I'm very upset about it".

Yosemite National Park planned to reopen its treasured Yosemite Valley to all visitors late Friday as firefighters slowly gained the upper hand on the blaze.

It was the longest closure at Yosemite since 1997, when floods closed the park for over two months.
