  • Aerial Photos Show Carr Fire Destruction, Devastation in Redding Area

The 181,000-acre (73,250-hectare) Carr Fire has destroyed almost 1,100 homes.

"It looked like a tornado". The 16-square-mile (41-square-kilometer) blaze was only 5 percent contained.

Early on Friday, more than 1,200 firefighters were fighting the blaze, building barriers and constructing containment lines to slow the approaching wildfire. Some communities in Riverside County are under mandatory evacuation orders affecting about 7,500 residential structures, according to authorities.

"Stay safe", she said as smoke billowed behind her. "God bless".

Firefighters under Cal Fire's command have helped OR authorities fight a fire near the California border and responded to a blaze that broke out this week in Orange County and burned a dozen cabins.

The biggest fire now is the Mendocino Complex fire, which actually consists of two big fires - the Ranch Fire and the River Fire - that together have consumed more than 300,000 acres. "Weather conditions will continue to challenge firefighters as hot, dry and windy conditions persist", officials said in a statement. "Man, you know, we (are) just trying to get the job done".

The fire was deliberately set. He also claimed he had been threatened by the MS-13 gang. When the commissioner ordered bail to remain at $1 million, Clark shouted that he could easily afford it. At one point Clark covered his face with his long hair and later he stared directly at a camera providing a feed to reporters outside the courtroom.

The charges can carry a life sentence.

Volunteer Fire Chief Mike Milligan told the Orange County Register that Clark has long feuded with other cabin owners in the canyon and last week sent him an email warning: "This place will burn".

In Northern California, a mechanic helping to fight the Carr Fire burning around Redding was killed in a traffic collision on Thursday, bringing the death toll from that blaze to eight, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said.

President Donald Trump approved a major disaster declaration for Shasta County as a result of the blaze, paving the way for federal aid for the fire's victims.

A man charged with intentionally setting the fire is scheduled for arraignment on Friday. If the smoke remains aloft it shouldn't impact air quality in any measurable way. A smoky haze stretches from the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range to Sacramento and hovers over the San Francisco Bay Area, with most major population centres in between suffering air quality that's considered risky for children, the elderly and people with asthma or other respiratory conditions. Last month, he was placed on a psychiatric hold.
