Brown On Wildfires Outbreak: ‘We Are In For A Rough Ride’

The Mendocino Sheriff's Office said on Tuesday night evacuees who need shelter could check in at the Covelo Fire Station. "You can expect, unfortunately, that to keep intensifying in California and throughout the Southwest".

"Whatever resources are needed, we're putting them there", said Governor Jerry Brown. Jerry Brown warned Wednesday that this very busy fire season is "the new normal".

"A huge forest fire in Northern California has destroyed more than 1,000 homes in and around the town of Redding", - stated in the material.

"We recognize that as people enter back into their neighborhoods, they're going to know people, family members and neighbors that have lost homes", Moore said. The deaths of two bulldozer operators battling California wildfires in July highlighted the dangers confronting these less visible firefighters.

Currently, almost 13,000 firefighters were on the lines of 16 large wildfires Wednesday burning across California. "We're being surprised. Every year is teaching the fire authorities new lessons". Most of the crews are helping with structure protection.

Flames consume a home as the River Fire tears though Lakeport, Calif., on Tuesday, July 31, 2018. It has destroyed almost 1,000 homes and killed six people and is now considered the seventh most destructive wildfire in the state's history. "Despite progress, the fires were only 12 percent contained".

Two fires in Mendocino County, the River Fire, which is 38 percent contained, and the Ranch Fire, 15 percent contained, have consumed almost 100,000 acres.

Redding police said everyone reported missing in Shasta County had been found.

Dubbed the Eel fire, it started about 3:30 p.m.in the Black Butte River Ranch area.

Thousands of people were allowed to return to their homes this week but the blaze continues to burn and has scorched 180 square miles (470 square kilometers).
