Farther north in Shasta County, the devastating Carr Fire claimed its seventh victim Saturday when a Pacific Gas & Electric worker died while working with a crew to restore power, utility spokesman J.D. Guidi said.

The trio were arrested on suspicion of interfering with firefighters and not having authorization to be in an evacuation zone.

"There's some challenges that firefighters are facing near the fire and in the area of the fire".

All three men were later released with citations. Its absence tells the story behind Trump's fire tweet: He has no idea what's causing the bushfires this season, no conception of how to fight them and no plan in place to alter the trend of more fires or more severity. As of Monday morning, it was 30% contained and had destroyed 75 residences.

On Monday, twin fires being treated as one incident north of San Francisco became the largest wildfire in state history, destroying 443 square miles (1,148 square kilometers) - almost the size of the city of Los Angeles.

The Mendocino Complex fire, which comprises the Ranch Fire and River Fire, is the largest blaze Californian firefighters are now tackling. The two fires, which have threatened more than 9,000 structures, have not merged, but officials are counting them as one.

The current spate of wildfires happens to be within range of large Northern California lakes and the state's biggest river, McLean said. The fire is entering its third week, with 163,000 acres burned and more than 1,000 homes lost.

President Trump blamed environmental laws yesterday for intensifying wildfires in California, in his first tweet about the ongoing disaster that has killed at least seven people.

Basic income program cut 'devastating' for recipients
That system will be developed over the next 100 days and implementation will occur sometime after that, she said . That increase is down from the former government's scheduled increase of 3 per cent which was set for October.

Over the weekend, the White House approved a disaster declaration for Shasta County, allowing affected residents from the Carr Fire to apply for federal disaster assistance such as temporary housing, home repairs and other programs.

In the coming days, and perhaps longer, this line will be extended east through the Mendocino National Forest, potentially through the Snow Mountain Wilderness, to keep the fire from continuing to move north through the National Forest.

The Mendocino Complex is now considered the sixth-largest wildfire in California history.

Firefighters in Lake and Mendocino counties ignited more back burns overnight to remove tinder-dry brush fueling this massive wildfire.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted, "California wildfires are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren't allowing massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized".

The two wildfires that make up the Mendocino Complex Fire grew over the weekend to become the second largest wildfire in the state's history.

"Fire season is really just beginning", Cal Fire Director Ken Pimlott said, explaining that such intense conditions used to come around the peak of the season.

Through July 29, the agency said it responded to 3,770 fires across 292,455 acres. These backfires give off large plumes of smoke, and their flames have been visible from Ukiah, but it should be remembered that they are a firefighting measure, and though they may appear threatening from the Ukiah Valley, they instead represent progress in containing the fire, and ensuring that it does not actually threaten the valley.
