"You can expect, unfortunately, for that to intensify".

"Whatever resources are needed, we're putting them there", said Governor Jerry Brown.

The largest of them, the Carr Fire north of Sacramento near the city of Redding, has burned for more than a week and engulfed almost 190 square miles.

The fire, which is almost twice the size of Sacramento, was only 35 per cent contained after more than a week.

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.

"We recognize that as people enter back into their neighborhoods, they're going to know people, family members and neighbors that have lost homes", Moore said.

More than 4,000 fire personnel are battling the flames, but triple-digit heat, shifting winds, dry fuel and steep terrain are working against them, officials said.

North and east of San Francisco, two wildfires that began Tuesday near the communities of Covelo and Yuba City continued to burn through grass, brush and timberlands. "We're being surprised. Every year is teaching the fire authorities new lessons".

A new fire, being called the Eel Fire, is causing need for mandatory evacuations in Mendocino County as of Tuesday. "It's going to get expensive, it's going to get risky, and we have to apply all our creativity to make the best of what is going to be an increasingly bad situation".

Ninety-eight large active fires burned across the United States that week, according to the NOAA.

The Mendocino Complex Fire is a combined 80,408 acres as of Tuesday night, and is made up of the Ranch and River fires.

Property losses so far have been put at 1,546 structures, including 1,058 homes, making the Carr Fire the sixth most destructive in California's history.

Unlike the Carr Fire, authorities don't know what started the Ferguson Fire, which has now engulfed almost 63,000 acres.

Law enforcement officials said the last four people reported as missing were found safe on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, at least three new fires erupted Wednesday in the Sierra Nevada region, including a blaze in Placer County that had consumed 405 hectares of land.

The fire is believed to have been started by a malfunctioning vehicle on July 23.
