As we wrote the other day, the Carr wildfire has now become the sixth most destructive on record in California, surpassing both of last year's Thomas and Nuns fires.

Jerry Brown is calling on President Donald Trump to help the state deal with another deadly and destructive wildfire season. Two others were killed in another wildfire in the state. A Red Flag Warning is in effect in Lake County from 11 a.m. Friday until 11 p.m. Saturday due to gusty winds and low humidity in fire weather zones.

This comes as the complex fire grows to a combined 157,250 acres, with at least 41homes destroyed, and 9,200 still threatened.

The Carr wildfire is now set to be the largest loss of the 2018 California wildfire season and looks certain to become a billion dollar loss, which will put it among the top ten most costly US wildfires ever for the insurance and reinsurance industry. The blaze has destroyed more than 1,500 structures, including the homes of three Redding firefighters, according to the GoFundMe site.

The Carr wildfire's potential to create a billion dollar insurance industry loss is an early reminder of the impacts the wildfire peril can have.

California fire officials said Saturday that the two fires about 100 miles (161 kilometers) north grew to nearly 250 square miles (648 kilometers).

A new mandatory evacuation order went out in Lake County late Friday morning for the Mendocino Complex Fire, according to authorities.

Firefighters watch as an air tanker drops fire retardant to protect homes along the crest of a hill at the River Fire (Mendocino Complex) near Lakeport, California, U.S. August 2, 2018.

However, some days-old evacuations were lifted Friday in an area near Redding, where armies of firefighters and fleets of aircraft have been battling an vast blaze about 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of the OR line.

Yosemite Valley and other areas of the park have been closed to tourists since July 25 because of heavy smoke from the fire, which has burned almost 100 square miles (259 square kilometers) and is only partially contained. Basically, you protect lives and private property first, then as time and resources permit, deal with the part of the fire that is burning in remote areas.

A California bulldozer operator almost slipped off a steep mountain trail three times before his vehicle finally rolled into a ravine and fatally crushed him.

The report says 36-year-old Braden Varney was working alone overnight July 14 fighting a wildfire sparked hours earlier outside Yosemite National Park.
