  • Smoke from the Cranston Fire is shown from east of Lake Hemet in Riverside County California U.S

Strong gusts of wind along upper ridge lines have been causing concern on the fire's western side, a few miles from the town of Lewiston, which remains evacuated.

Smoke rises above Clear Lake as the River Fire (Mendocino Complex) burns near Lakeport, California, U.S. August 1, 2018. Several roads in the area remained closed. Jerry Brown warned Wednesday that this very busy fire season is "the new normal".

With high winds expected to worsen, throwing hot embers over containment lines, "we could continue to see those conditions pose difficulty for us into the night-time hours", he told Reuters by telephone.

Covelo is a highly rural area in northern Mendocino County, east of Highway 101. The Carr Fire burning in Shasta County has grown over 115,000 acres and is 35 percent contained.

"Last night, firefighters made good progress on increasing containment on the River and Ranch fires", said Ron Myers, a deputy incident commander with Cal Fire.

Six people were killed in the Carr Fire, including two firefighters, two children who perished with their grandmother in a house that burned, and a man who defied an evacuation order to stay put in another home that was consumed by the fire.
