Nearly 21 wildfires — ranging in size but widely spread — have destroyed 40 residences since Saturday and continue to post a threat to 6,000 buildings, said local officials.

A temperature change left high hopes for a slowdown in the spread of the big Rocky Fire, however authorities said firemen will need more than a drop in the heat to put out the fire on the severely dry Californian land.

According to Daniel Berland, spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire), wind and the area’s mountainous ground have caused the fires to spread over 24,000 acres with the flame eating up 47,000 acres in Lake, Yolo and Colusa counties.

“The (Rocky) fire is expected to have significant activity and growth,” Cal Fire said in its late Saturday advisory. “Current strategic constraints include lack of access to areas of the fire, very hot and dry weather, critical fuels and changing winds…. In total, all evacuations impact over 12,100 citizens living in over 5,156 residences”.
