Cal Fire: Utah Firefighter Dies Battling Ranch Fire

Cal Fire: Utah Firefighter Dies Battling Ranch Fire

It is now the sixth most destructive fire in California history, Shanley said.

A firefighter has been killed battling the largest wildfire in Californian history that has been stoked by prime fire weather conditions as it has destroyed dozens of homes.

The largest fire in California history turned deadly on Monday as a firefighter tending the blaze was killed. The fire has now grown to over 349,000 acres, but the Ranch Fire - one half of the Mendocino Complex Fire - is up to 59 percent contained.

In a Facebook post, Cal Fire used the opportunity as a teaching moment, telling residents, "Remember to have a plan for all your pets".

Five civilians were killed in the Carr Fire as well, including a worker for Pacific Gas & Electric.

The Mendocino Complex is actually two blazes burning so close together that authorities are attacking them as one, a common practice at Cal Fire.

When asked about the claims by left-wing environmental groups and even US lawmakers who blame climate change for contributing to the fires, Zinke said that is a separate matter from the need to manage forests to help lessen the spread of wildfires or even prevent them.

The fire has been burning since July 23. The Carr Fire in Shasta and Trinity counties has so far resulted in eight deaths.

The firefighters normally work in the Los Padres National Forest. Despite losing everything they own, many of them still come to work to restore power, fight fires, and fix damaged facilities. "We are dedicated to investigating what happened", said Sean Kavanaugh. Add in fires on Forest Service land that's burned and its almost a sevenfold increase in acreage burned compared to normal.

On Monday, Yosemite National Park officials announced the reopening of Wawona Road and Mariposa Grove to visitors.

The next phase for firefighters, he explained, is preparing to "reduce erosion when the winter rains come".
