Carr Fire: What we know Thursday

Seems to us that these

"The predictions that things would get drier and hotter are occuring". Media personnel on scene said the fire was especially intense near Dessie Drive and Hendricks Road. The Carr Fire burning in Shasta County has grown over 115,000 acres and is 35 percent contained.

Cal Fire said that "steep terrain, erratic winds, and previously unburned fuels are contributing to spot fire potential".

Incident Commander Brett Gouvea said weather was helping. We're hoping you can help make them whole again.

"We had a lot of equipment on it last night", Gonzalez said.

The Redding Police Department has made "many, many arrests" in connection with looting, Chief Roger Moore said Wednesday.

The Carr Fire is so large and intense that it created its own localized weather system, making it hard to predict which way the blaze will spread.

Between July 26 and July 27, more than 20,000 residents of Redding were ordered to evacuate amid the rapidly-expanding Carr fire. Roughly 15,000 residents have been evacuated.

The fire has burned an area four times the size of San Francisco.

In the large-scale forest fire in California has destroyed over 1000 dwellings.

Twin fires in Mendocino and Lake counties had burned 14 homes and threatened 12,000 more.

In the past several days, smoke from the California wildfires has stretched all the way to Oklahoma.

Some California firefighters have been working nonstop for two weeks.

Cal Fire spokesman Jonathan Cox said the intensity of this summer's wildfires is historic.

Having scorched more than 121,000 acres (48,967 hectares), an area larger than New Orleans, the blaze was the biggest of 16 major wildfires burning throughout California and the most formidable of more than 90 across 13 Western states from Texas to Alaska.

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.
