“We chewed up a couple of thousand acres in a single day but no additional homes were lost,” state fire spokesman Jay Smith said.Unfortunatelly, there were human victims on the scene. One firefighter, Engine Capt. David Ruhl, from South Dakota, part of a Black Hills National Forest firefighting team, was killed at a fire at the Modoc National Forest, 100 miles south of the Oregon border, and four other were burned in a blaze near Sacramento; one of them remains hospitalized with serious burns on his body. Buildings are still considered at risk in Placer and Nevada Counties. In Humboldt County, at least 70 fires have been reported in the area since Thursday.
