California's largest wildfire is spreading rapidly, consuming 54,000 acres in three counties and remaining active at a time when firefighters are normally making progress, state fire officials said Sunday. Several wildfires in Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties, known as CZU (August Lightning Complex) fires, have merged and spread. The deadly frog fire has consumed at least 3,900 acres since it was discovered Thursday and is only 4% contained, and the Santa Barbara County White Fire is about 50 acres, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
The Hennessey fire in Napa County, which became a complex after another fire when it merged with three other blazes, now covers 100,000 acres, Cal Fire said. The third largest fire the state has ever seen is the Mendocino and Sonoma counties river fire, which consumes 37,196 acres and destroys 12 buildings, homes and businesses. In California, the river fire - which has engulfed more than 1,500 acres of land in Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties, destroying 10 buildings, damaging two others and forcing mandatory evacuations - is also burning, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection in the San Joaquin Valley. All three fires have burned at least 2,200 hectares, or about 1.5 million hectares in total.
Cal Fire spokesman Daniel Berlant said 12,000 firefighters are currently battling the Napa County River Fire and Hennessey Fire, as well as the Mendocino and Sonoma fires in Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties. The river fire is considered a complex large-scale fire, Newsom said, but it is still being investigated by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Frankly, our resources are exhausted, "he said in a telephone interview from his San Francisco office.
Cal Fire said its ability to fight the fires has been hampered because firefighters have battled hundreds of fires across the state and only so many crews are on the road. There were more than 1,000 firefighters from across California who intervened, including over the holidays, and Cal Fire says the sheer number of fires nationwide means they are not getting the firefighters that officials are used to. We know that fire damage can happen at any time, but this is the first time in California history that we've seen it happen. Ve had to respond to these many fires in such a short time - even during the holidays.
