Fire officials lifted some evacuation orders Wednesday. The Ferguson Fire, which has burned 63,798 acres, is 39 percent contained. The area remains closed to residents as crews work to restore some of the infrastructure in the area.

At the moment, the fire has been able to destroy a total of 1,060 residential structures, and is 35 percent contained by authorities.

In another sign the crisis in Redding was ebbing, law enforcement officials said the last four people reported as missing among a list of 20 whose names were published on Tuesday were located safe and sound on Wednesday.

In June and July, 29 people from Kansas worked a combined 6,646 hours as wildfires exploded in the western United States.

More than 3,000 firefighters are battling the Mendocino Complex and were making some progress in slowing the fire that has been fueled by dry brush and fanned by wind and high temperatures.

The Nevada County strike team, composed of engines from Ophir Hill Fire, Peardale Chicago Park Fire, Higgins Fire, Nevada County Consolidated Fire and Nevada City Fire is now assigned to the Mendocino Complex.

California Gov. Jerry Brown says his state is in "uncharted territory" with the current slew of intense wildfires and he warns that climate change has made the situation "part of our ordinary experience".

Just a month into the budget year, California has already spent more than one-quarter of its annual fire budget, at least US$125 million, state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Mike Mohler said on Wednesday (Thursday NZ Time).

Yosemite Valley and other areas of the park have been closed to tourists since July 25 because of heavy smoke from the fire, which has burned almost 100 square miles (259 square kilometers) and is only partially contained.
