  • New mandatory evacuation orders for parts of Lake County

New mandatory evacuation orders have been issued for Glenn County due to the Mendocino Complex Fire. Firefighters were having some success keeping flames away from heavily populated areas, and officials began allowing some residents to return to their neighborhoods.

"To the northeast, Blankenheim said the fire had "some explosive growth" Friday, making another seven to eight-mile run up to the top of Indian Valley Reservoir", explaining that firefighters had eight bulldozers out Friday trying to build lines near Stonyford and hold the fire there, though the fire did "cross a dozer line (Friday) night and continued to spread".

The River Fire, where this video of air tanker was taken, has burned through 42,200 acres and is about 50 percent contained.

Two firefighters and four other people have been killed since the blaze, which ignited July 23, raced with extraordinary fury toward the region's largest city. In an interview with the Associated Press, NWS meteorologist Duane Dykema said the phenomenon was on par with some of the most destructive Midwest tornadoes.

The fire is moving into grass and timberlands where it will be more hard to control, fire behavior analyst Don Boursier told the Los Angeles Times.

The Times noted that Redding has received rain in 71 days and has seen 33 days of 100-degree temperatures, according to the National Weather Service.

On Saturday while touring the Carr Fire in Anderson, Gov. Jerry Brown formally requested from President Donald Trump a "Presidential Major Disaster Declaration" that would unlock federal assistance for residents impacted by the fires. Brown said he expects Trump to help California.

"We think we're making pretty good progress holding Scotts Valley, and we don't believe we lost any structures in Scotts Valley", Blankenheim said. "We are routinely now seeing fires reach 100,000 acres several times in one month and it's only July, so we have a long way to go in this fire season, and as we saw past year fire season can go right up through December".

In seven of the past 10 years, the state's wildfire costs have surpassed CalFire's emergency fund budget.

The fire has reached into remote areas of the country's third-oldest national park. Officials said soon after the blaze started that mechanical failure of a vehicle was to blame, with Wold saying that includes its trailer.

The National Weather Service issued red flag warnings of critical fire weather conditions through Saturday night, saying a series of dry low-pressure systems passing through the region could bring wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour that could turn small fires or sparks into racing walls of flame.

The National Park Service said Yosemite Valley is not threatened by the fire as of Friday at noon.

"After aggressively suppressing fires for the last 100 years we have put our forests in a state of peril", said Cal Fire Chief Thom Porter.
