California firefighters thanked by 3 girls on horseback

Firefighters attacked hotspots to slow the spread of the River Fire

Extreme weather conditions were expected to return on Thursday and could stoke wildfires in California, where thousands of tired firefighters are battling the destructive, deadly blazes. The Ranch Fire moved into sparsely populated areas, but the River Fire ran through an area with scattered ranches northwest of Lakeport, California. More than 12,000 firefighters and even 3,000 prisons inmates are locked in a pitched battle against the blazes.

"We're concerned with individuals that have no family", Bosenko said. The fire is progressing into the town of Lewiston, Cal Fire spokesman Gabe Lauderdale said in a press video Wednesday morning. Jerry Brown. "All that is the new normal that we will have to face".

The fire gets its name from its point of origination at Carr Powerhouse Road, but it has now spread far beyond its first home.

The fire, which is almost twice the size of Sacramento, was only 35 per cent contained after more than a week.

"We're being surprised. Every year is teaching the fire authorities new lessons", Governor Jerry Brown told reporters.

The Carr Fire, which broke out July 23 off Highway 299 in the Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, has claimed the lives of six people, including two firefighters.

"The need to protect these communities.is requiring more firefighters, more resources all the time", Pimlott said.

Six people, including two firefighters, have died and the fire has destroyed 1060 homes and almost 500 other buildings, including barns and warehouses, making it the sixth most destructive wildfire in California history, state fire officials said.

More than 100 large wildfires were burning across 13 Western states, having consumed more than 1.4 million, according to the National Interagency Fire Centre.

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.

Air tankers have been dropping fire retardant on two wildfires in Northern California to help try and stop them spreading any further. The weather isn't helping: low humidity, winds, and dry conditions are challenging firefighting efforts.
