Mendocino Complex Aug. 13: Ranch Fire continues to grow towards Pillsbury

California Wildfires: Thoughtful Authorities Help Keep Pet Fish Alive After Homeowners Evacuate

A mechanic helping to fight the Carr Fire near Redding in northern California was killed in a auto crash on Thursday, the eighth person to die in that conflagration.

Authorities say the man died Monday night at a hospital after he was injured at the site of the Mendocino Complex fire north of San Francisco.

The MAFFS system can literally be rolled onto a number of different aircraft, including the legendary C-130 Hercules, allowing for integral air support in the firefighting effort without the need (and expense) of an entire fleet of dedicated firefighting aircraft.

"The Mendocino Complex Unified Incident Commanders from CAL FIRE, and the United States Forest Service are deeply saddened to report the death of a firefighter on the Mendocino Complex", CAL FIRE sad in a statement.

The deadliest fire, the Carr Fire, has left eight people dead, including three firefighters. Because of a long-lasting drought in the region, the territory is ripe for the fire to once again gain the upper hand, and officials warn that there remains a significant threat that the fire could once again begin to grow uncontrollably.

The Holy Fire named for Holy Jim Canyon, where it began Monday, grew to almost 33 sq miles (85 sq km) by Saturday morning.
