CalFire: Firefighter in Mendocino Complex Fire dies, River Fire 100% contained

A total of eight people have been killed in connection with the Carr Fire, including two firefighters and four civilians.

A recently released video shows what it's like to fly in the cockpit of one of the California National Guard C-130s now working to contain the Carr fire, one of the largest wildfires in California's history. This comes as the River Fire of the two Mendocino Complex Fires has now reached 100% containment.

This is the first reported death linked to the Ranch and River fires. "Sorry if we weren't supposed to".

The BC Wildfire Service is dealing with more than 27 fires in what officials are calling the Monashee Complex, stretching from the Lumby, B.C. area to Three Valley Gap on the Trans Canada Highway. "Now we can focus on the challenge of the Ranch Fire", he said. It is now threatening more than 1,500 others.

The fire is 1,900 acres and 55 percent contained. The deadly fire has burned for almost three weeks and killed eight people. But despite the unrelenting heat and the fire gaining about 20,000 acres, the fire is now 61 percent contained.

It is now the sixth most destructive fire in California history, Shanley said. It has burned a combined 331,000 acres and injured two firefighters.

Below Cal Fire's message, some thoughtful member of the Corning PD also wrote a message, even including the date and time when Grant was fed.

As the family fled their property during the Carr Fires west of Redding, the father warned his daughter that their pet fish, named Grant, probably hadn't survived.

The currency drop will also increase the cost of living for people in Turkey by making imports more expensive. The Turkish stock market has also fallen 17%, while government borrowing costs have risen to 18% a year.

"Fed your fish a few sprinkles".

"Thanks CAL FIRE Engine 1489 & Corning Police Dept. for ensuring Grant was fed while his owners were evacuated due to the #CarrFire", Cal Fire tweeted. "Good Luck", they added.

Wildfires are raging through California, destroying everything in their wake.

However, Clark denied the arson charge during a court hearing. He's being held on $1 million bail, and faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if found guilty.

The vast majority of the fire - 65,460 acres - has torn through the Sierra National Forest, making it the largest fire in the forest's history, U.S. Forest spokesman for the Ferguson Fire Tom Efird told NPR.

Yosemite National Park will reopen Tuesday, 14 days after a wildfire choked the park with smoke at the peak of tourist season.

The next phase for firefighters, he explained, is preparing to "reduce erosion when the winter rains come".
