The Carr Fire, near the city of Redding, has proved to be the deadliest of almost 20 major fires raging across the state, having previously claimed seven lives, including two firefighters.

Mandatory evacuation notices are in place for Mayhew/Sycamore Creek, Glen Eden, Horsethief, Rice Canyon, Rice Lake, McVicker, Machado and South El Cariso and Riverside.

All schools in the Lake Elsinore Unified, Menifee Unified, Perris Union High School and Perris Elementary School districts in Riverside County will be closed Saturday due to poor air quality caused by the fire. He is being held on $1 million bail and faces life in prison if convicted.

The man accused of deliberately starting the fire appeared in court on Friday, but his arraignment was postponed.

Police on July 25 arrested Brandon McGlover on suspicion of setting the Cranston Fire, a blaze that destroyed fire homes, east of Los Angeles. The burn area is now reported at approximately 4,100 acres with 5 percent containment. "This should be called the Holy Hell Fire".

Officials are wary that the fire could threaten more homes if the wind were to change direction or the fire were to branch into drainage basins.

"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 fire has grown quickly because of high temperatures and the area's steep terrain, according to the Cleveland National Forest.

A California man was charged with arson and other offenses on August 9 for allegedly starting the Holy Fire in Orange County, it was reported.

The state's largest wildfire in history has drawn a contingent to battle what is actually two fires burning so closely together that they're being attacked as one. He is charged with aggravated arson damaging at least five inhabited structures, arson of inhabited property, arson of forest and criminal threats, all felonies, as well as two misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest.

As of Thursday morning, crews had contained an impressive 51 percent of the fire.

Milligan said he did not know what he meant, adding that Clark sent emails to other people in which he talked about burning something. California firefighters are now working to contain at least 18 fires in the state.

"This is a monster", Orange County Supervisor Todd Spitzer said at a news conference Wednesday. "There is no peace in my home when he is here", she wrote in court documents. The fire more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of Sacramento has destroyed more than 100 homes and blackened an area about the size of Los Angeles.

Firefighters have achieved only 5 percent containment, Cleveland National Forest officials said on Twitter, though fire crews are hoping favorable weather conditions over the weekend will help them stem the fire's advance.
