Holy Fire in pictures: Apocalyptic scenes as wildfires rage in California

Across the state, at least 14,000 firefighters are struggling to contain the multiple outbreaks.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District has issued a smoke advisory for most of Southern California through Thursday morning, August 9.

The largest fire in California history is the Mendocino Complex Fire, which consists of the Ranch and River fires - in Northern California.

Nielsen spoke Friday at a press briefing in Redding, California, to update the public on the Carr Fire in Shasta County.

Fire crews from Australia and more than 30 New Zealanders have also flown over to share their expertise in battling bush fires.

Crews continued aerial and ground firefighting efforts Wednesday, with 16 air tankers, 10 helicopters and additional fixed-wing aircraft assisting ground crews, who were working to build bulldozer lines, authorities said. A resident of Holy Jim has been charged with arson and other crimes and appeared in a jailhouse courtroom Friday.

"Oh man, it's hard, but we make it look easy", said one of the inmates, Michael Henson. "We were on pins and needles for a little while there because it got real close". He believed Pizzagate is real (it's not, but it did lead to a seriously risky situation) and more recently that someone deep within the USA intelligence community is posting clues to troll boards, including 4chan and 8chan, about a coming political reckoning. It is still spreading.

The so-called "Holy Fire" started on Monday in the Holy Jim Canyon area, has already burned 12 structures and is only five per cent contained, authorities say.

Smoke billowing from the destructive fires burning through California this summer has spread far beyond the Golden State - reaching the East Coast.




At first, Clark would not show his face, his lawyers saying he feared reprisals against his family. The hearing was postponed for a day. When a court commissioner ordered his bail to remain at $1 million, Clark said he can easily afford it and asked if he could pay it right away.

Milligan said that Clark had recently sent him an email warning, "this place will burn".

According to WGN9, Clark told a cameraman he was asleep when the fire started. "Later, he came back and told me what a jerk I was and everyone was after him".

Forrest Clark, 51, made several outbursts, claiming his life was being threatened.

And the Carr Fire - which has killed six people, including two firefighters, and burned more than 1,000 homes - is moving into remote forest lands.

The blaze forced more people to evacuate their properties on Friday and prompted the closure of schools.

The fire is burning through steep, mountainous terrain filled with dried-out shrubs that are ideal fuel for the blaze. The blaze about 100 miles north of San Francisco around the resort region of Clear Lake has destroyed 116 homes and injured two firefighters.

The Donnell fire in Stanislaus County, which drew concern when it grew exponentially over the weekend, has now burned 17,941 acres, according to the U.S. Forest Service.
