Smoke From Holy Fire Continues to Blanket the Victor Valley

  • 'This place will burn,' says text allegedly sent by man arrested in connection with California fire

A firefighter looks on as the Holy Fire consumes a hillside Thursday in Temescal Valley in Corona, Calif.

Despite mandatory evacuation orders, Castro stayed behind to protect his Lake Elsinore home from looters, he said.

The fire - named for the canyon where it started - destroyed a dozen cabins after it broke out Monday.

More than 21,000 people have been evacuated in and around the city of Lake Elsinore, where flames and billowing smoke rose into the sky at the edge of the city of 60,000 near the Santa Ana Mountains.

Forrest Clark made several outbursts in his first court appearance on Friday, after refusing to leave his cell the day prior.

Volunteer Fire Chief Mike Milligan, another resident of the canyon, said he's known Clark for 20 years and that he's had a history of mental illness and hospitalization.

Clark, who is being held on $1 million bond, is slated to appear in court Thursday (Friday NZT), records show.

The fast-moving fire has blackened 10,236 acres of the Cleveland National Forest and was only 5% contained Thursday evening.

The phone numbers for residents to call for information on the Holy Fire have changed, according to CalFire.

However, evacuations were ordered for communities near a new fire in the Fall River Mills area, about 112 kilometres northeast of Redding.

"Until this thing is barking at my door, I'm going to stick with it", he said.

Despite its massive size, the Mendocino Complex Fire was far from a worst-case scenario.

Forrest Clark, 51, was charged with setting the fire, the Orange County District Attorney Office said.

The Holy Fire is just one of the wildfires now ravaging California. He faces charges for arson, felony threat to terrorize, and resisting arrest. California firefighters are now working to contain at least 18 fires in the state.

These hot and windy conditions can create extreme fire behaviour, as well as increasing dangers for those tackling the blaze. "This shouldn't be called the Holy Jim Fire".

"Years ago, a large gathering really had to be advertised for it to become a large gathering", Johnson said, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.

The Mendocino Complex Fire in northern California, which is made up of two separate fires, has burned at least 302,086 acres since it began on 27 July.

Environmentalists "make outdated and unscientific arguments, void of facts", Zinke wrote, "because they can not defend the merits of their policy preferences year after year as our forests and homes burn to the ground". While the blaze has continued its unrelenting march, U.S. Forest Service officials said Thursday they "expect favorable weather conditions this weekend" to help the firefighting effort.

The two-week-old Carr Fire that killed six people and burned more than 1,000 homes was 51 per cent contained.
