The Delta Fire north of Redding continues to burn out of control. It has charred an additional 9,325 acres along the I-5 corridor since yesterday, totaling 31,325 acres, with no containment. Residents of Dunsmuir, approximately 15 miles north of the fire, are being told to be ready to evacuate. Interstate 5 remains closed, with no expected reopening day. The freeway has sustained some damage that CalTrans will need to address when it is safe to do so.

I read these numbers and then realise that the Ranch fire at 410,000 acres is about the size of a number of English counties. Bloody hell.

The Delta Fire grew slightly to 60,592 acres, while containment improved to 88 percent. A Fire Weather Watch is in effect as of this evening, as warmer temperatures, low humidity, and gusty winds are in the weather forecast for large parts of Northern California.
Delta Fire Wednesday, September 19: Containment up to 88 percent | KRCR

After 54 days, nearly two months, the Ranch Fire, and thus the Mendocino Complex Fire, is fully contained. Collectively, the Ranch and River Fires burned 459,123 acres, or 717 square miles - larger than the City of Los Angeles (503 square miles). The Ranch Fire alone burned 410,203 acres, making it the largest wildfire in California history - dwarfing the now-second largest fire, the Thomas Fire, by almost double. The Mendocino Complex Fires burned 280 structures, 157 of them being residences, killed one firefighter and injured four others, and spanned three counties.

There are currently seven wildfires reported not fully contained in California. Most of them are small and/or in remote locations. However, a large part of Northern California is under a Fire Weather Watch for the next few days, which increases the risk of another major fire occurring.
