Eel Fire sparks in Mendocino County, in addition to Mendocino Complex Fire

Firefighters all across the Bay Area continue to help out with the wildfires burning in California, with many being sent out to the front lines of the Carr and the Mendocino Complex fires.

The Carr fire, the largest fire now burning in California, grew to 125,842 acres overnight and remained 35% contained as of Thursday morning.

- The forward spread of the so-called Western Fire in Mendocino County has been stopped and is 50 percent contained, Cal Fire officials tweeted Wednesday evening.

As fire crews continue to battle more than a dozen wildfires across California, officials are anxious about the impact these disasters will have on the state's economy.

Some of the 40,000 residents who were forced to flee as the Carr Fire approached say they did not get any notification ahead of time, according to Sam Harnett, a reporter with member station KQED in San Francisco.

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.
