Trump approves disaster aid for California amid devastating wildfires

A couple of fast-growing wildfires in northern California expanded to more than two-thirds the size of sprawling Los Angeles as more residents were ordered to evacuate their homes and tired firefighters endured high temperatures and gusting winds. The apprentice lineman was working to restore power in the area.

Ayeta is the seventh person to die in the huge 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 (160 kilometers) south of the OR state line.

Other fires raging in the state include the Mendocino Complex, comprised of two blazes: the River Fire and the Ranch Fire.

"The Mendocino Complex Fire has charred more than 254,000 acres, making it the fifth largest blaze in California's history", AccuWeather said on its website.

Meanwhile to the south, new evacuations were ordered Saturday evening near twin fires burning in Mendocino and Lake counties across wilderness on both sides of Clear Lake.

Ventura County firefighters watch as a helicopter makes a drop on a hot spot of a wildfire in Scotts Valley near Lakeport, California.

"These kinds of frightful situations bring people together, regardless of the lesser kind of ideologies and partisan considerations", Brown told a news conference Saturday.

It burned so furiously on July 26 that it created a "fire whirl".

The auto , which is only a year or-so old, is priced at £71,900 and comes loaded with £11,330 worth of optional extras. The Audi RS6 Avant is essentially what would happen if you told a supercar and a people carrier to have offspring.

The fires have burned nearly one-half million acres since June and destroyed more than 2,000 structures, it added.

The wildfire has grown to 175 square miles (280 square kilometers) and is a few miles from connecting with a second blaze that has grown to 64 square miles (105 square kilometers).

California's current year-round fire season is producing more extreme and destructive blazes than in the past.

Meteorologist Steve Anderson said wind gusts could reach 25 miles per hour (40 kph) during the day Sunday. Trump said the water is being diverted into the Pacific Ocean.

President Donald Trump has approved a major disaster declaration for California.

In the Sierra Nevada, firefighters achieved 41 percent containment of a forest fire that has shut down Yosemite Valley and other adjacent portions of Yosemite National Park at what is normally the height of summer tourism.

The "firenado" also left behind damage that looked more like the work of a tornado than a wildfire-tiles stripped from roofs, trees uprooted, cars moved, a transmission tower tipped over. "New fires will grow rapidly out of control, in some cases people may not be able to evacuate safely in time should a fire approach", the weather service said in its bulletin for the Mendocino area north of San Francisco. Jairus Ayeta, 21, was on duty when the utility says he was involved in a vehicle accident.

After visiting some of the fire-ravaged areas on Saturday, California Gov. A mandatory evacuation order was issued for the area, including all campgrounds and homes, the Bee reported.
