No wet weather on the way for CA firefighters

Right on the heels of the deadly Carr fire near Redding, California, a new fire has burst onto the scene. This one has been burning for quite a while, since July 27th to be exact, but it has quickly grown to become the largest fire in California's history.


Made up of two twin fires, the Ranch and the River, the Mendocino complex fire has already burned more than 283,000 acres about 100 miles north of San Francisco.


Unfortunately for the firefighters in the region, the weather doesn't look to cooperate over the next three to seven days. Temperatures will also continue to climb through the 80s into the low 90s by Friday. Little to no rain chances are in the forecast for the area this week and firefighters will have to deal with thick haze and smoke as the fires continue to grow.
