The fourth largest wildfire on record in California

Mendocino Fire

The Mendocino Complex fire continued to grow

at an alarming rate, burning more than 266,000 acres by Sunday morning and becoming the fourth-largest in California history.

The massive blaze, the most serious of 17 major brush fires burning in California this weekend, was raging across wilderness on both sides of Clear Lake, forcing more evacuations in rural areas of three Northern California counties.

Officials said 9,300 structures are threatened, 68 homes have burned and 12 have been damaged. Officials expect the Mendocino Complex to climb to the third-largest wildfire by Monday morning.

The Mendocino Complex is two fires, the Ranch and River, which have burned in separate directions for days.
