Suspect in California Holy Fire Case: It's 'Gonna Burn'

This satellite image released on Tuesday Aug. 7 2018 provided by NOAA shows the wildfires known as the Mendocino Complex Calif. Northern California is grappling with the largest wildfire in California history breaking a record set only months ear

That blaze had burned burned more than 304,000 acres and injured two firefighters, as of Thursday morning.

Joe Rodriguez was using a power washer to wet down his patio in the McVicker Canyon Park neighborhood Thursday morning.

The Holy Fire - named for Holy Jim Canyon where it began Monday - grew to almost 85 square kilometres by Saturday morning.

Many schools have been forced to close, and more evacuation orders were being issued. If he's convicted, he could face life in prison.

Clark's arraignment was delayed until Friday because he had refused to come out of his cell to appear in court Thursday. Other major fires, such as the Ferguson Fire burning near Yosemite, have also wreaked havoc. A court commissioner ordered his bail to remain at $1 million US.

It was 49 percent contained with firefighters struggling in steep terrain to control the blaze, CalFire said.

"I've been trying for years to get someone to pay attention and nobody has really had the opportunity to do that until now", he said.

The fires all grew explosively in the past two weeks as winds whipped the flames through forest and rural areas full of timber and brush that is bone-dry from years of drought and a summer of record-breaking heat.

Forrest Gordon Clark, 51, who owns a cabin in Holy Jim Canyon, was arrested earlier this week after a standoff with police and charged with arson, making criminal threats and resisting arrest.

The Holy Fire was one of several blazes burning across California that have displaced tens of thousands.

Experts warn that worsening weather conditions, with thunderstorms in the forecast, could lead to "extreme fire behaviour" over the next few days, he adds. Emergency management officials are working tirelessly to contain the fires as they jump rivers and roads and spread to new areas, but while the danger is highest in California itself, the effects of the raging infernos can be felt as far away as New York City. California firefighters are now working to contain at least 18 fires in the state. The Mendocino Complex Fire has burned through over 290,000 acres in Northern California and as of last week was named the largest wildfire in California history.

"Firefighters continue to battle the blaze around the clock", the national forest tweet said. Eight people have died as a result of the fires.

In Northern California, a mechanic helping to fight the Carr Fire, burning around Redding, was killed in a vehicle crash on Thursday, the eighth person to die in that conflagration.
