Mandatory evacuations as firefighters battle California wildfires
Firefighters worked to battle the so-called Mendocino Complex Fires from the ground and the sky on Monday (July 30), as authorities ordered the evacuation of more than 10,000 residents, local media reported.
The Mendocino Complex Fires are twin fires in Mendocino and Lake counties, burning just 30 miles (48 kilometers) apart, CBS reported.
Northeast of the Mendocino Complex Fires, the Carr Fire continued to rage near the city of Redding. The massive wildfire has killed six people and destroyed hundreds of homes, while rescuers searched for at least seven missing people.
