The "fire tornado" that ripped through Northern California last week forced residents to flee their homes chaotically, many with their pets and little else, people sheltering in Red Cross evacuation centers said. It's kind of like a lid over the fire, which keeps the activity down, which is a good thing.

The fire is comprised of the Ranch Fire, which spans 13,000 acres located at Highway CA-20 about 8 miles to the northeast of Ukiah, and the River Fire, which totals 11,000 acres and is located 6 miles north of Hopland, said local fire authorities.

The state has spent more than $114 million fighting fires in July, the first month of California's fiscal year.

Four homes have burned in the River Fire, but another 4,600 are threatened.

Others will provide local fire department station coverage, some will be assigned as initial attack resources for new fire starts and others will pre-position in anticipation of the next round of lightning forecasted for California. While the CalFire Twitter feed says the fire is 856 acres, he said it is now 650 acres. The Ferguson Fire, which has claimed the lives of two firefighters, had burned nearly 100 square miles and was 39 percent contained after burning for nearly three weeks.

Bush had returned to his mobile home in the community of Keswick last Tuesday after undergoing quadruple heart bypass surgery but he was unable to drive and would have needed help to evacuate when the fire came through the neighborhood on Thursday, his sister, Kathi Gaston, told the Redding Record Searchlight.

Gaston said she couldn't get to her brother's house because, with the fire approaching, sheriff's deputies had blocked the roads and then she herself had to evacuate. "So we have a long way to go in this fire season".
