Support victims of the Carr Fire with the Carr Fire Relief Fund

California wildfire

Along with a bulldozer contract employee and a Redding firefighter killed in the Carr Fire, the captain of a wildland hotshots team and a Cal Fire heavy equipment operator have been killed in the Ferguson fire burning near Yosemite in Mariposa County.

Any family and friends who would like to report a missing person can call the Carr Fire Missing Persons Hotline: 530-225-4277.

It said: "Throughout the day crews will continue to mitigate spot fire potential across control lines".

Fire officials say a massive blaze in Northern California has torched 1,018 homes in and around the city of Redding. There are 23 firefighters with five engine companies and seven apparatus helping Cal Fire at the Mendocino Complex and the Carr fires.

As fire crews continue to battle more than a dozen wildfires across California, officials are anxious about the impact these disasters will have on the state's economy.

Meanwhile, at least three new fires erupted on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) in the Sierra Nevada region, including a blaze in Placer County that had consumed 1000 acres or 4 square kilometres of land.

Watch an aerial video of the California fires. By Wednesday afternoon, containment was at 35 percent.

The Eel Fire became the third wildfire in Mendocino County to take off, joining the Mendocino Complex Fires - the names given to the River and Ranch fires that are burning elsewhere in that county - and the Carr Fire that has ravaged Shasta County.

As many as 38,000 residents were under evacuation orders at the height of the fire late last week.

The largest blaze burned in the Redding area, in Shasta County north of Sacramento.

"We're in for a really rough ride", Brown said at the news conference.

"We're being surprised. Every year is teaching the fire authorities new lessons", Gov. Brown said the trend would likely worsen if forecasts by climate scientists come to pass.
