Mendocino Complex fire becomes California's largest wildfire in history, authorities say. The Mendocino Complex fire, fueled by dry vegetation and hot, windy weather, has become California’s largest wildfire, authorities said on Monday. The fire, two separate blazes burning a few miles apart, has scorched 283,800 acres and is only 30 percent contained, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. It has surpassed last year’s Thomas Fire that burned more than 281,000 acres. Ref. USAToday.

California wildfires rages amid fear of mega-inferno. Red flag warnings of extreme fire danger were expected to continue into Friday for large stretches of Northern California amid fears that multiple wildfires could merge into a 1-million acre mega-inferno. Officials fear gusty winds, extreme heat and low humidity may prompt the Zogg Fire, which has burned through 55,303 acres near Redding and left four people dead, to fuse with the August Complex Fire - which has already incinerated 955,513 acres.

California's August Complex largest fire in state's history. NOAA/NASA's Suomi NPP satellite captured another startling image of the August Complex of fires that has grown to over 1,000,000 acres burned (1,006,140 acres total) and because of that grim milestone the complex has been dubbed a 'gigafire.'
