    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
    Los Angeles Times, Aug 15 2018 11:10 AM

    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.

    The River fire, the smaller of the two Mendocino Complex blazes, remains under full containment. It burned 48,920 acres. The Ranch fire has now burned 329,800 acres and is 76% contained. Combined, the two fires have burned 378,720 acres (592 square miles) -- and there are still 14 other fires burning in California.

    The Los Angeles Times today points out what Californians are already well aware of: Wildfires are getting "bigger, faster and increasingly destructive." The fire near Redding has now burned 223,610 acres (350 square miles), destroyed 1,600 homes and buildings and left eight people dead. It is 79% contained.

    Without warning: Redding fire moved faster than evacuation orders, leaving a deadly toll

    Higher and higher the numbers go -- and where they will stop, nobody knows. Here are the latest figures on acreage burned in California's five largest wildfires. The estimated acreage burned in the Holy fire is now 11 acres less than it was two days ago. Combined, these five wildfires have burned 1,130 square miles.

    Ranch fire, Mendocino County: 334,700 acres
    Carr fire near Redding: 227,085 acres
    Ferguson fire near Yosemite: 96,825 acres
    Donnell fire, Stanislaus County: 31,745 acres
    Holy fire near Lake Elsinore: 22,885 acres

    The Ranch fire has now burned 335,647 acres. The Carr fire near Redding has burned 227,098 acres. After burning for 38 days, the Ferguson fire is now fully contained. That makes two California wildfires contained -- and 13 to go.

    Fire that prompted closure of parts of Yosemite National Park is contained

    "California's largest wildfire continues to burn." We've seen that headline every day for the last week and we'll probably be seeing it every day for another three or four weeks.

    California's largest wildfire continues to burn, prompting additional evacuations
    Los Angeles Times, Aug 20 2018 1:50 PM

    The Mendocino Complex fire — the largest wildfire in modern California history — continued to grow overnight, prompting anopther round of mandatory evacuations in Glenn County. The Ranch and River fires, which make up the complex fire, had burned 398,862 acres as of Monday morning. Firefighters treat the Ranch and River fires as one event even though the two fires never merged. The River fire is fully contained but steep inaccessible terrain, erratic winds and low humidity have made the Ranch blaze difficult to control. It is 74% contained.
