Wildfire that closed key California highway doubles in size

At least 12 homes were destroyed as a result of the Holy fire near the Cleveland National Forest in August. "This man has been through Hell (sic) and back", the story on one of the funds said.

"I think in one day it's burned 15,000 acres, so now has the potential to join those two fires up".

"It's a marathon that just keeps getting longer and longer", said J Olsen, a firefighter with Central Calaveras Fire and Rescue who worked the Mendocino Complex fire.

Interstate 5 is seen completely empty in Lamoine, Calif., in the Shasta Trinity National Forest on September 6, 2018. They later revised the affected streets to those along I-5 from Exit 707 to Exit 714. "We know what it like to have to leave and come home hoping to have something there". Farther north, an evacuation warning was in effect for the town of Dunsmuir, advising some 1,600 residents to be ready to flee at a moment's notice. People should also make arrangements for their pets to be safe, he said.

"The fire progressed primarily to the northwest, but it is also extremely active along the eastern edge between Interstate 5 and the Hirz Fire", according to the US Forest Service."There are several areas along the southern perimeter where the fire crossed over primary control lines and crews are aggressively attacking these slop-overs to prevent the fire from making southerly progress".

Amtrak's Beth K. Toll said in an email that there aren't any alternate routes through the area now available.

Authorities closed a major highway and issued evacuation orders to areas in the path of the expanding conflagration.

There's no estimated time for the freeway to open again.

Officials later reported a new closure on Interstate 5 at Riverview Drive in the Lakehead area.

Fire officials said in a statement that crews were setting dozer lines and backfires to protect Highland Springs, north of Boulder Creek, as well as Castella and Dunsmuir farther north. "They handle the most complex incidents".

A representative from the Shasta County Sheriff's Office could no immediately be reached for comment.

Google Maps continues to update the California fire map with information about fires to which the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) is responding, along with information about evacuations and road closures.
