The Mendocino Complex fire is now the largest wildfire in modern California history, scorching more than 283,000 acres and frustrating firefighters as it continues to leap across natural and man-made barriers in Lake County.

With the fire still burning and containment only at 30 percent, the Mendocino Complex could top the Thomas Fire that burned in Southern California late a year ago to become the largest in state history. But officials say it threatens 11,300 buildings and some new evacuations were ordered over the weekend as the flames spread.

The global fire teams were to arrive in Redding, California, on Monday, said Cal Fire Director Ken Pimlott.

The size of the fire has surpassed that of last year's Thomas Fire, which burned 281,893 acres in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties when it destroyed more than 1,000 structures.

About two-thirds of the worldwide reinforcements in Redding were sent to the Mendocino Complex Fires, U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Kerry Greene said, and the remaining third stayed nearby to fight the Carr Fire.

President Trump blamed environmental laws yesterday for intensifying wildfires in California, in his first tweet about the ongoing disaster that has killed at least seven people.

A 20-year-old utility worker was killed while working on the edge of a raging Northern California wildfire - the seventh person to die in the blaze, officials said on Sunday. The fires are being fed by strong winds and high temperatures, and parts of the Mendocino Complex Fire are proving to be unstoppable.
