Cal Fire: Utah Firefighter Dies Battling Ranch Fire

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

A volunteer fire chief said that two weeks ago, Clark sent him a message saying, "The place is going to burn".

Thick smoke and ash spewing from the fire prompted air quality warnings.

Burchett began work for the Draper City Fire Department in May, after 20 years working for the Unified Fire Authority. But firefighters also made progress, with containment rising from 10 to 29%.

So far, the Holy Fire has scorched more than 22,700 acres in the Cleveland National Forest.

CAL FIRE reports that 147 residences have been destroyed in the two fires and another 1,025 remain threatened. "Sorry if we weren't supposed to", firefighters from Cal Fire Engine 1489 said in a hand-written note left next to Grant's fish bowl.

Zinke and U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue are in California this week to meet with state officials and to personally thank the firefighters who are battling the fires.

The first fatality has been reported in connection with the largest blaze in California history.

The Ranch Fire has grown significantly since yesterday evening, increasing in size by 8,491 acres to 295,970 as of this morning's CalFire update - and due to the increase in the fire's size, containment dropped to 59%.

The fire is the largest wildfire recorded in California state history and is burning in steep and rugged terrain.

CAL FIRE officially lists two firefighter deaths in the blaze, though San Francisco ABC station KGO reported a third firefighter, Andrew Brake, was killed in a auto accident traveling to the fire.

On Sunday Zinke posted images to Twitter of destruction in Shasta County. The fires had burned a combined total of 325,226 acres and was 67 percent contained.

In Southern California the Holy Fire, which authorities say was set on August 6 by a disgruntled homeowner in an Orange County canyon, was 59 percent contained after torching more than 22,000 acres and destroying a dozen cabins. It has burned 1,000 acres and was 65 percent contained.
