MENDOCINO Co., 8/6/18 - The monster that is the Mendocino Complex continues to grow, having climbed the ranks of the largest fires in recorded California history, incredibly rapidly.

Ayeta is the seventh person to die in the enormous blaze that has been burning for two weeks near Redding, where armies of firefighters and fleets of aircraft continue battling the flames about 100 miles south of the OR state line.

In his Sunday morning update, Blankenheim said while firefighters are succeeding in their battle to protect Scotts Valley in Lake County, the Ranch Fire did move into Long Valley Saturday.

Ayeta is the seventh person to die in the destructive fire that has been burning for two weeks near Redding, where armies of firefighters and fleets of aircraft continue battling the huge blaze about 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of the OR state line.

"The president has been pretty good on helping us in disasters, so I'm hopeful", said Brown, a Democrat.

"California wildfires are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren't allowing massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized".

The fire has now spread to more than 163,000 acres and is only 45 percent contained, according to the department.

Thousands of personnel have been continuously working to contain the raging flames, along with hundreds of fire engines, dozens of bulldozers and several helicopters. He noted the lakes near the Carr and Mendocino Complex fires.

Some areas on the fire's southeastern flank in Redding were reopened to relieved residents.

Gusty winds, high temperatures and dry vegetation have spurred fire growth.

Despite Trump's criticisms, the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Sunday said federal disaster assistance is available for victims of California fires from July 23 forward.

"Unfortunately, they're not going to get a break anytime soon", said Brian Hurley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. The whirl uprooted trees and tore roofs from homes, Dykema said.

Some areas in Central and Northern California could see 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 Celsius) and winds of 15 miles per hour (24 kph) with higher gusts that could fan the flames and spread embers, he said.

This year, catastrophic fires in California have already killed seven people, including a 33-year-old firefighter and a 36-year-old heavy-equipment operator.
