  • Smoke from California wildfires is drifting all the way to New York City

But most of that has been driven by the Ranch Fire, which has burned much more vigorously.

In a video of the hearing, Clark can be seen making several outbursts and calling the charges against him "lies". It has burned about 550 square miles and destroyed almost 150 homes in Mendocino, Lake and Colusa counties.

"The Mendocino Complex Unified Incident Commanders from CAL FIRE, and the United States Forest Service are deeply saddened to report the death of a firefighter on the Mendocino Complex", CAL FIRE sad in a statement.

If all goes well, firefighters still don't expect to the have the massive blaze completely contained until sometime in September.

About 130 miles (160 km) away, crews had cut buffer lines around 68 percent of the largest wildfire recorded in California history, the Mendocino Complex, which has already charred about 344,000 acres.

On Sunday Zinke posted images to Twitter of destruction in Shasta County.

At least one happy story has sprouted up amongst so many tales of woe coming out of California's historically destructive Carr Fire.

North Korea's top diplomat, Ri Yong Ho, visited Iran as the United States reintroduced sanctions against the Islamic Republic. "They called for collaboration in forcing sanctions and pressure upon us even at the global meetings".

Crews are also working to strengthen containment along the Ranch Fire's southern boundary. The fires had burned a combined total of 325,226 acres and was 67 percent contained.

"The northern portion of the Ranch Fire was very active overnight and continues to threaten areas north of the fire perimeter".

After a month of burning, the Ferguson Fire has singed 96,457 acres across three national forests and private land. There was success bringing the western edge of the fire back into the Mendocino National Forest.

The man accused of deliberately starting the fire appeared in court on Friday, but his arraignment was postponed.

So far the fires have destroyed 139 homes and 119 structures.

"Firefighters made good progress overnight building and reinforcing containment lines". The fire spread quickly due to what officials said was a flawless combination of weather, topography and abundant vegetation turned into highly flammable fuel by years of drought.
