Cal Fire: Utah Firefighter Dies Battling Ranch Fire

Smoke from California wildfires is drifting all the way to New York City

Firefighters monitor a back fire as they battle the Medocino Complex fire on August 7, 2018 near Lodoga, California. The fire retardant used is a specially developed chemical spray that can be used to slow or stop the spread of the fire, or even reduce its intensity by reducing how flammable the fuels in the area (such as wood) or temporarily delaying its combustion, hindering the progress of the spreading walls of flame.

The fatality marks the sixth firefighter to be killed in California's wildfires this year alone.

Six firefighters have died in those wildfires. The deadly fire has burned for almost three weeks and killed eight people.

The Carr Fire, which began nearly three weeks ago, has destroyed nearly 1,100 residences. The fire, which is roughly the size of Charlotte, North Carolina, was 59% contained as of Sunday morning.

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

But the increasing containment did not necessarily mean the wildfire season was quieting down, Cal Fire spokesman Cary Wright said in a phone interview.

The Orange County Register reported that Holy Jim Volunteer Fire Chief Mike Milligan received an email from Clark saying, "This place will burn". "Sorry if we weren't supposed to", members of Cal Fire Engine 1489 wrote in a note that the family found upon their return.

After a father informed his daughter that her fish was likely dead, both were in for quite a shock when they returned home to a well-fed fish!

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.

"Good luck", the second note said, as if Grant and his owner hadn't already enjoyed a great deal of fortune.

The man accused of deliberately starting the fire appeared in court on Friday, but his arraignment was postponed.
