Hundreds of homes imperiled as Northern California fire spreads

Hundreds of homes imperiled as Northern California fire spreads

The County Fire was only 5 percent contained early on Tuesday, with more than 2,100 fire personnel battling the flames, the California Fire authority said.

Almost 60 large, active blazes are burning across the West, including nine in New Mexico and six each in Utah and California, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

More information on mandatory evacuations is available, here.

"We just got confirmation last night that the house was completely gone".

"It burned very actively overnight (Monday), was still burning in the morning and is still burning now", said Cal Fire Capt. Jordan Motta.

The Lake Christine Fire is forcing the evacuations of homes along Original Road, Silverado Drive, Hillcrest Drive and the Pineridge area, according to a news release from Carbondale Fire.

Trump blasts OPEC, warns European companies against business with Iran
Trump said in a tweet on Saturday that Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud had agreed to produce more oil. Iran had been pushing hard for oil producers to hold output steady as US sanctions are expected to hit its exports.

"Keeping ahead of the winds, and knowing what the winds are going to do and where, and with the terrain mixed in, is a challenge", Childers said.

"It's something everyone here is passionate about", said Massa, "and whether we're in our own backyard or on the other end of the state, we're always happy to help".

Crews continued to take aggressive action on Monday to set up perimeter control by creating a controlled burn while up against shifting winds.

The fast-moving blaze that broke out Saturday in western Yolo County charred at least 50 square miles of dry brush and threatened more than 100 structures in ranchland northwest of Sacramento. Temperatures and relative humidity "will be favorable" to firefighting efforts on Tuesday, Matta said. That's a bit below last year's acreage to date - which included the beginning of California's devastating fire season - but above the 10-year average of 3,600 square miles. In Colorado, many communities have canceled firework displays, and a number of federal public lands and counties have some degree of fire restrictions in place, banning things like campfires or smoking outdoors.

The Rio Grande Scenic Railroad said the fire destroyed its outdoor concert stage and it is raising money to rebuild it.

In New Mexico, all or part of three national forests remain closed because of the threat of wildfire, putting a damper on holiday camping plans. The map above shows they have made progress toward that goal.
