The man accused of starting a Southern California blaze that forced the evacuation of 20,000 residents sent a text to a volunteer fire chief two weeks ago saying, "The place is going to burn", the chief said Thursday.

The Holy Fire, which began burning on Monday, is encroaching on Orange and Riverside Counties and was last reported to be only 5 percent contained.

A state of emergency has been declared for Orange and Riverside counties because the fire threatened thousands of homes.

Meanwhile, evacuations continued on Wednesday as the Holy Fire flames approached within half a mile of homes. Two other people - a state fire heavy equipment mechanic assigned to the fire and a utility worker trying to restore power near the fire- have died in auto accidents.

The El Portal Road to Yosemite Valley is closed as a wildfire burns in Yosemite National Park in this National Park Service photo released on social media from California, U.S., August 6, 2018.

As of Thursday morning, crews had contained an impressive 51 percent of the fire. "This shouldn't be called the Holy Jim fire, it should be called the Holy Hell fire", he said.

Earlier this week law enforcement identified that human, arresting Forrest Gordon Clark on two counts of felony arson, one count of felony to terrorize and another count of misdemeanor resisting arrest.

When the judge described his right to a preliminary hearing, Clark said, "I do not understand, though I will say, "yay" at this time".




Forrest Clark is facing a number of charges in the Holy Fire case.

More than 4,000 firefighters are battling the Mendocino Complex Fire, which has burned 477 square miles in three counties north of San Francisco, CalFire said.

Clark is being held at the Orange County Jail on $1 million bail and is expected to make a court appearance Friday.

The fire was being fueled by dry brush covering steep terrain and stoked by erratic wind gusts during the night, said Thanh Nguyen, a spokesman for the incident said.

In the south, Cleveland National Forest officials tweeted that the flames outside Los Angeles were growing as fast as crews can build lines to contain them. The 181,000-acre (73,250-hectare) Carr Fire has destroyed almost 1,100 homes. "I reported this over and over again". If he's convicted, he could face life in prison. The 51-year-old state health inspector congratulated the couple and left quietly to head back to her house in the city of Lake Elsinore and grab important documents.

Firefighters had nearly contained a huge fire near Yosemite National Park.

Eric Lint, a neighbor of Clark whose cabin burned in the blaze, said he was not surprised by Clark's arrest.

Residents in states like Missouri, Ohio, Mississippi, Virginia and even NY and MA can see the smoke manifest itself through grey skies and vibrant sunsets, the National Weather Service says.
