Man Who Lost Wife, Great-Grandchildren In Carr Fire Recalls Their Final Words

The Carr fire has forced thousands of people to flee

"We've had 17 fires before", Cox said. Another 800 personnel have been deployed by the California National Guard. After days of fortifying the areas around Redding, fire crews were increasingly confident that the city would escape further damage.

He said he was told that the sheriff's office picked them up and rescued them.

Firefighters in Shasta County, in northern California, where the Carr Fire began on July 23, warned on Twitter that "erratic winds and hot, dry conditions on the #CarrFire resulted in greater growth and increased fire behavior last night".

The death toll from the fire climbed to five after the bodies of Melody Bledsoe, 70, and her great-grandchildren, James Robert, 5, and Emily Roberts, 4, were recovered from Bledsoe's home in Redding, relatives said.

Crews stretched to their limits across the state are fighting flames that have claimed the lives of two firefighters and six civilians. "I've been a lifelong resident of this community".

"I've never seen a fire with such destruction here in this area ever before".

Moore was helping evacuate people from his River Ridge neighborhood in western Redding when the flames became unbearable.

While her parents grabbed photos and corralled their dogs, the 16-year-old scooped up her phone, an outfit and a new pair of sneakers she bought while back-to-school shopping.

"All of our food was there, and now we're draining our checking account trying to keep gas in the vehicle and buy food too", she said while grabbing a hot meal at a Red Cross shelter.

Within days, she learned the family's house had been destroyed.

"God Almighty, I don't know what I done wrong", he said.

About 38,000 people have been evacuated in Shasta County due to the Carr Fire, officials said.

Daniel Potter, a spokesperson with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, said firefighters were aiming to protect buildings on the eastern and southeastern edges of the fire. It is only 5 percent contained.

"We are very encouraged with the fire status in the city" of Redding, Cal Fire incident manager Bret Gouvea told reporters regarding the Carr fire.

Firefighters also faced hard weather on Sunday with hot and dry conditions offering no relief to the efforts to contain the fire.

Gouvea, however, said he was wary of unpredictable weather. "There's a lot of low-level smoke, which means missions are having to be aborted", said Cox, the Cal Fire spokesman. "Got over the top of them, and they lay there until the fire took them", Bledsoe said.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said Sunday that the remains were found within the boundary of the Carr Fire near Redding, about 230 miles (370 kilometers) north of San Francisco.

"We have confirmed that the person did receive evacuation notices and did not evacuate", he said.

Cal Fire also reported Saturday that a separate blaze burning since July 13 near Yosemite National Park, known as the Ferguson Fire, has grown to 49,619 acres and is 29% contained.

Bulldozer operator Don Ray Smith, 81, was killed while clearing debris for the firefighting effort when his position was overrun by the flames. At least seven others have been injured.

Residents of the waterfront town of Lakeport fled Sunday after a major flare-up of two fires that combined across Mendocino and Lake counties destroyed at least four homes.

Another California fire prompted a rare closure of much of Yosemite National Park last week, while a third forced mass evacuations from the mountain resort community of Idyllwild, east of Los Angeles.
