Pawnee Fire In Lake County At 56% Containment

Smoke from Sugarloaf Fire burning in Grand County drifting into Boulder County

The man accused of starting the wildfire acknowledged building a fire but said he made sure it was out, according to a court document. Of course if they are, it does not mean that the structures have been destroyed.

"It's our duty to save life and property", he said. On Monday, firefighters were working to control a wildfire in Yolo County that had grown to 44,500 acres overnight. Officials ordered about 300 people to leave their homes near Lake Berryessa in neighbouring Napa County as flames bore down.

San Francisco residents shared photos on social media showing the city choked by ash and smoke as a yellow haze washed over the city, resembling a sepia tone Instagram filter.

Ash has been seen falling in the Bay Area, about 75 miles south of the fires.

Wildfires have burned through almost 2.5 million acres in the United States from January 1 through Monday, well above an average of about 2.3 million for the same calendar period over the last 10 years, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

Joergensen, who reported the wildfire about 205 miles southwest of Denver, said he woke up Wednesday from a nap, smelled smoke and saw a fire burning in sage brush about 20 feet away from the fire pit.

"We've got hot, dry and windy conditions", Helmerick said.

Two military cargo planes joined civilian aircraft and ground crews battling a southern Colorado fire that had burned across 230 square kilometres and forced the evacuation of more than 2,000 homes.

Just under a year since the deadliest firestorms in state history, intense wildfire has returned to the region, fanned by high winds and hot temperatures.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Investigators haven't released other details except to say they don't think he intentionally started the fire.

The fire threatened about 700 homes, a local NBC affiliate reported, as authorities issued evacuation orders and advisories to hundreds of residents.

"A county the size of Madison requires a very conjoined effort and yesterday was a prime example of multiple agencies working together for the benefit of its citizens", read a Facebook post from the Madison County Fire Department.
