    No containment, new threats from Northern California fire
    The Associated Press, Aug 22 2021 1:08 PM

    A wildfire burning for a week in Northern California continues to grow out of control, one of about a dozen big blazes in the drought-stricken state that have destroyed hundreds of homes and forced thousands of people to evacuate. There was zero containment Sunday of the Caldor fire, which has charred nearly 154 square miles of trees and brush in the northern Sierra Nevada after breaking out August 14. The cause is under investigation.

    KNP Complex fire burns within mile of Giant Forest, threatening towering Sequoia preserve
    Los Angeles Times, Sep 15 2021 3:26 PM

    The KNP Complex fire, composed of the lightning-sparked Paradise and Colony fires which ignited Thursday amid regional thunderstorms, has ballooned to 7,039 acres with 0% containment. As it exploded rapidly through drought-stricken, bug-killed trees, the fire forced the closure of Sequoia National Park and the evacuation of employees living within it. The flames are about a mile from the famed Giant Forest, the largest concentration of towering giant sequoias in the park and home to the 275-foot General Sherman tree, considered the world’s largest tree.
