Since it started from a burning vehicle near Redding on July 23 it has burned over 186,000 acres in an area about 27 miles long by 19 miles wide.

Trabuco and Holy Jim canyons were also under mandatory evacuation orders, as well as the Blue Jay and El Cariso campgrounds.

The Holy Fire - named for Holy Jim Canyon where it began Monday - grew to almost 85 square kilometres by Saturday morning.

Shannon Hicks, 59, defied an evacuation order and watched in awe as firefighters faced down a storm of flames that descended toward her street in the city of Lake Elsinore.

Milligan said he was so wary of Clark that he avoided altogether going to the area of the remote Orange County canyon where the 51-year-old Clark lives, he said. At least 12 structures have been destroyed.

Clark, who is being held on $1 million bond, is slated to appear in court Thursday (Friday NZT), records show. The burn area is now reported at approximately 4,100 acres with 5 percent containment.

The webcam still from the Holy Fire, from the University of California at San Diego, is just one of a number of stunning images capturing these flying tankers.

Although it's not the largest fire burning in the state, there are growing concerns about how it could affect residential communities - including Lake Elsinore.

When the judge described his right to a preliminary hearing, Clark said, "I do not understand, though I will say, "yay" at this time".

In their Saturday morning update, California National Forest stated that Holy Fire had grown to a staggering 21,473 acres and was 29 percent contained.

The head of the Orange County team fighting the Holy Fire said the blaze had started near Clark's cabin in Jim Canyon.

The Holy Fire is just one of the wildfires now ravaging California.

The toll from the California wildfires rose to 10 Thursday after a heavy equipment mechanic assigned to the Carr Fire was killed in a road accident, authorities said.

Rob Gore, a firefighter from the Australian capital of Canberra, said it makes for good relationships that Australians often fight fires in North America and that Canadians and Americans regularly fight fires in his country.

"Crews worked throughout the night to reinforce containment lines while the fire behavior remained extreme". While the blaze has continued its unrelenting march, U.S. Forest Service officials said Thursday they "expect favorable weather conditions this weekend" to help the firefighting effort.

"Firefighters continue to battle the blaze around the clock", the national forest tweet said.

"We know this district burns, but it should never burn because of an intentional act".

The Complex fire is actually made up of two fires: the smaller River Fire, which has burned 48,920 acres, and the larger Ranch Fire, which has burned 255,482.

A fire that broke out near the communities of Fairfield and Vacaville had destroyed a home and two other structures, according to the Vacaville Fire Department.
