Mendocino Complex Fire Grows To 2nd Largest In California History

Mendocino Complex Fire Grows To 2nd Largest In California History

The River and Ranch fires, which together are called the Mendocino Complex, blackened an area of 273,660 acres (110,750 hectares).

The fires, north of San Francisco, have burned 75 homes and is only 30 percent contained.

Scott McLean, a deputy chief with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, described the flames as "extremely fast, extremely aggressive, extremely dangerous".

The Thomas Fire killed two people, burned 440 square miles, and destroyed more than 1,000 buildings in Southern California before being fully contained January 12.

After Trump's tweet yesterday, a spokesman for Brown said "this doesn't merit a response".

"The water that reaches the ocean is what's left after we've diverted most of the water away for cities and farms, and what little is left is barely enough for California's aquatic ecosystems and the fisheries", he said.

Experts say Trump is giving voice to Republican opposition to the state's progressive environmental policies by taking issue with state measures created to protect fish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta by allowing water to flow through the delta and the San Francisco Bay, then out to the ocean.

Interested in California Wildfires? The southern perimeter of the River Fire has been contained and controlled for several days. "Must also tree clear to stop fire spreading!" As of Monday, that fire burned through 163,000 acres and destroyed more than 1,000 homes.

A 2016 study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that climate change was responsible for more than half of the documented increases in fuel aridity in western forests and had doubled the amount of land burned since 1984.

The two fires cover an area larger than the deadly Carr Fire burning near Redding, California.

The president criticized Gov.

Through last week, California fires had torched about 117,300 hectares, more than double the five-year average over that same period, according to Cal Fire.

Brown's office announced Saturday that the White House has approved a request for a presidential major disaster declaration that would help fire victims in Shasta County, which has been ravaged by the Carr Fire.

The dry, hot weather that climate change brings adds to the dried tinder and risk. "Despite personal loss in many cases, they've managed to not only keep open the Outpatient Clinic's doors, but travel deep into the community to ensure displaced veterans are receiving the care they need and deserve".

Farther north near Redding, the Carr Fire has claimed a seventh life.

The Donnell Fire burning in the Stanislaus National Forest and Tuolumne County has scorched 12,000 acres and is 1 percent contained.

According to Daniel Ramey, the PIO for Peardale Chicago Park Fire, "The team has seen a large amount of wildlife in the area - elks, coyotes, rabbits, deer, eagles etc".

Another blaze that ignited last week in the Sierra Nevada has damaged a historic Northern California resort in the Stanislaus National Forest.

The Ranch Fire is 225,001 acres and containment has decreased to 21% - making this fire the sixth largest in state history by itself.
