    A wildfire in Lassen County has burned 2,430 acres and a wildfire near Redding has burned 600 acres. Both are pretty much contained now.

    CNN reports the fire burned "the equivalent of 753 football fields" in five hours. The cause has not been determined. Murrieta, in southwest Riverside County, is named for 19th-century land owner Juan Murrieta, a sheep farmer and avocado grower.

    California wildfires burned more than 1,200,000 acres in 2017 and more than 1,800,000 acres in 2018. So far this year, fewer than 100,000 acres have burned. Lucky us!

    Evacuation orders lifted as firefighters boost containment of Tenaja fire
    Hundreds of residents who had been forced from their homes by a fast-moving brush fire that has charred 2,000 acres in the hillsides near Murrieta were allowed to return home today.

    The largest wildfire burning in the United States today is in northern California. Of course. The Walker fire began six days ago in mountainous terrain 150 miles northeast of Sacramento and has burned 75 square miles. The Taboose fire in Inyo National Forest has burned 9,300 acres. The lightning-caused Red Bank fire in Tehama County has burned 8,900 acres and another nearby blaze, the South fire, has burned 2,425 acres. Sixteen other wildfires are burning throughout the state.

    Containment of Walker fire in Plumas County inches forward; more than 47,000 acres burned

    October is typically the worst month for fires in southern California. At least six are burning right now. The largest is in Calimesa in northwest Riverside County. It has burned more than 500 acres and destroyed around 25 mobile homes and is moving toward Redlands.

    The fire in Calimesa has destroyed 74 mobile homes, houses and other structures. It has burned 823 acres and is 10% contained. A fast-moving fire that began at 9 PM yesterday in the San Fernando Valley has burned 4,700 acres (7.3 square miles) and is at zero containment. It's forced the evacuation of the entire community of Porter Ranch. Yikes!

    Twenty-two wildfires are burning today throughout California. The Saddleridge fire has now burned 7,500 acres (11.7 square miles) and destroyed 25 homes. It is 13% contained and all of Porter Ranch remains under mandatory evacuation.

    In the path of the Saddleridge fire, residents must make life-and-death decisions

    The Saddleridge fire has now burned 7,552 acres (11.8 square miles). As for the big fire in Calimesa, Shawn Melvin told KCBS-TV he was driving behind a garbage truck on Interstate 10. The trash was aflame and his 8-year-old son shot cellphone video of it. Melvin got the driver to pull over, warned him of the fire danger and told him to get off the freeway. Rather than risk his truck being destroyed, the man dumped the burning trash along the roadside. He's now facing criminal charges. Good! Lock him up!

    CalFire just updated the numbers. The Saddleridge fire near Porter Ranch has burned 7,965 acres (12.4 square miles) and is 33% contained. The Sandalwood fire in Calimesa has burned 1,011 acres (1.6 square miles) and is 68% contained. The Briceburg fire, which began burning October 6 north of Mariposa, has burned 5,565 acres (8.7 square miles) and is 60% contained. A 350-acre fire north of Moreno Valley is 97% contained and a 200-acre fire burning near the Buenaventura Golf Course in Ventura is 50% contained. I'm starting to understand why California tourism always declines in October.

    The Saddleridge fire has now burned 8,400 acres (13 square miles) and is 56% contained. A new fire broke out today near El Capitan State Beach and is 0% contained but it's moving toward the ocean.
