Idyllwild Fire in Riverside County California

Idyllwild Fire in Riverside County California

By Thursday, the fire was contained approximately 10 percent.

The Carr Fire in Shasta County has almost tripled in size overnight and is threatening areas west of Redding, Cal Fire said.

The wildfire, which started Monday in Whiskeytown National Recreation Area due to the mechanical failure of a vehicle, expanded to 20,000 acres Thursday thanks to high winds and hot, dry weather, forcing firefighters to move the Highway 299 road closure to Buenaventura Boulevard on the outskirts of Redding.

Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency in Riverside County Thursday as the destructive Cranston Fire continued to spread one day after it was allegedly sparked by an arsonist in the Idyllwild area, KTLA reported.

Brandon N. McGlover, 32, of Temecula was booked on suspicion of setting five fires, including a blaze threatening an estimated 600 homes in the San Jacinto Mountains east of Los Angeles, state fire officials said.

In the state's far north, a 7-square-mile wildfire has forced the evacuation of French Gulch, a small Shasta County community that dates to the Gold Rush.

On 07/20/2018 at approximately 6:30 pm, officers made contact with a domestic violence suspect at his residence on Sartain Dr. Adult relatives attempted to restrain the child and tell him to move away, but he came back near the officers.

The park itself is not in imminent danger, but the areas are being used for fire operations and are also filled with unhealthy amounts of smoke.

More than 3,300 firefighters have been working to put out the fire, aided by 16 helicopters.

The San Bernardino National Forest had clouds that reached up to 50,000 feet, creating its own lightning storm as a result.

There have been 3,4000 wildfires in California in the previous year, burning 99,000 acres, according to Cal Fire.

Acres burned: Now showing 4,700.

Authorities ordered residents to leave Idyllwild and several neighboring communities, home to about 12,000 people.
