    The Mendocino Complex has now burned 349,000 acres and many of the county's 64,000 residents are considering moving. Who can blame them?

    53% of Lake County has burned since 2012. Some residents say they've had enough.

    The National Wildfire Coordinating Group -- which sounds like a club for arsonists but it really isn't -- maintains a website called InciWeb which provides frequent updates on wildfires: acres burned, expected containment date, firefighting methods and equipment, maps, weather and other data. Here is the page for the Holy fire, which has now burned 22,986 acres and is 59% contained:

    The Ferguson fire has now burned 96,810 acres and is 87% contained. Parts of Yosemite Valley were re-opened yesterday. The Holy fire has burned 22,896 acres and is 72% contained. As for California's biggest fire.......

    California's largest fire ever keeps growing

    The largest fire in California history continued to grow today while firefighters worked to protect threatened communities. The Ranch fire has consumed 314,925 acres and is 64% contained. It has destroyed 147 homes so far. One firefighter, Matthew Burchett, 42, of Draper City, Utah, has died battling the fire. The Ranch fire is one of two fires that form the Mendocino Complex fire. Firefighters are still monitoring the smaller of the two, the River fire, which as of Monday was 100% contained.

    The Mendocino Complex fire has now burned 364,145 acres (569 square miles). The Los Angeles Times today repeats its "fire-keeps-growing" headline of yesterday -- and the fire is likely to keep growing for many more days.....or weeks.

    California's largest fire ever keeps growing as winds fan flames
