  • Carr Fire

Another major blaze known as the Ferguson Fire broke out near the popular Yosemite National Park nearly three weeks ago, on July 13, and was only 39 percent contained by Thursday, officials said.

The Grass Valley Fire Department said Thursday a cat and chicken it rescued over the weekend are recovering from burns with the help of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The area remains closed to residents as crews work to restore some of the infrastructure in the area.

"People are doing everything they can, but nature is very powerful and we're not on the side of nature", Brown said. They are 24 percent contained.

An aerial view of the homes of Harlan Drive and Bedrock Lane in the Lake Redding Estates neighborhood show the devastation caused by the Carr Fire which roared through the area late last week.

The blaze in the Redding area, 225 miles (360 kilometers) north of San Francisco, is the largest of 18 wildfires burning throughout California.

However, authorities who had feared there might be more casualties reported on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) that all those who had been reported missing had been located.

"We are making good progress on the fire", CalFire Deputy Chief Bret Gouvea told reporters at a mostly upbeat news briefing in Redding.

There was no need to panic, Singh said on Monday, adding that those missing from the draft list could re-submit their papers. The cutoff date to be eligible for Indian citizenship is March 24, 1971, as per the Assam Accord signed in 1985.

Tens of thousands of people remain under evacuation orders.

At a state Office of Emergency Services press conference today, Brown said firefighters would have to adapt to increasingly severe wildfires in the years to come because of climate change.

"Over a decade or so, we're going to have more fire, more destructive fire, more billions that will have to be spent on it", said Gov.

The fire is believed to have been started by a malfunctioning auto on July 23.

A DC-10 air tanker drops fire retardant along the crest of a hill to protect the two bulldozers below that were cutting fire lines at the River Fire (Mendocino Complex) near Lakeport, California. The weather isn't helping: low humidity, winds, and dry conditions are challenging firefighting efforts.

The major fires in Northern California presented mixed news on Wednesday.

A 100-square-mile (259-square-kilometer) fire near Yosemite National Park prompted evacuation orders for the community of Wawona inside the park, which has fewer than 200 residents.
