California Fires: Photos of the Blazes Devouring the State

Updated: Aug 07, 2018 2:14 PM ET | Originally published: Jul 31, 2018

Just days into the California fire season, the news has been devastating. According to a California fire map put out by Google, at least 19 fires have destroyed more than 560,000 acres across the state dating back to at least July 13, killing at least seven people, injuring hundreds more and displacing thousands, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE).

Initially, Redding, the largest city in the Northern California impact area, was hit particularly hard, with the Carr Fire spreading so far that it become one of the worst fires in the state's history. The fire started on and it's only 35% contained as of August 1.

But Monday night the Mendocino Complex Fires devoured almost 7,000 more acres, adding to its unfortunate claim of being the largest California fire in history.

As firefighters continue to battle the blazes—from the Carr Fire to the Mendocino Complex Fire and beyond—the news continually evolves on this story. For an up-to-the-minute fire update from CAL FIRE, check out these California fire Google Maps.
