Suspect arrested, charged with starting Cranston Fire

The 45-square-mile (115-square-kilometer) fire that began Monday tripled in size overnight Thursday amid scorching temperatures, low humidity and windy conditions.

The blaze has crossed the Sacramento River and now threatens hundreds of homes on the western fringes of the city of Redding, the Sacramento Bee said.

The California Highway Patrol says officers have detained a motorist for questioning after people called 911 to report a suspicious vehicle near the fire's starting point in Riverside County.

The San Bernardino National Forest officials said Thursday evening the Cranston fire had grown to 7,500 acres with 5% containment.

It was one of five major, uncontained wildfires burning across California during a heat wave that has the state sizzling under record-shattering temperatures.

The fast-moving blaze has so far burned five homes.

In Southern California, thousands remained evacuated Thursday as a suspected arson wildfire burned in the San Jacinto Mountains east of Los Angeles.

Helicopters and planes dumped water and fire retardant on the area.

Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in Shasta County on Thursday morning, the California Office of Emergency Services said. CBS affiliate KFMB-TV reported that the Riverside Sheriff's station was conducting evacuations of Idyllwild, the Apple Canyon area, the Lake Hemet area, Mountain Center Community, the Hurkey Creek area and Camp Scherman Girl Scout Camp.

A huge forest fire continued to grow outside Yosemite National Park.

In the north, new evacuations were expanded to about 2,200 people in the wilderness recreation region near Redding that included Shasta and its historic former courthouse and ruins of brick buildings that make up Shasta State Historic Park.

On Wednesday, an extended family from Los Angeles on their annual trip to Yosemite prepared to leave the Upper Pines campground. All homes accessed from roads north of Hialeah were under mandatory evacuation, while homes south of Hialeah through just south of Highway 371, including those accessed from Hialeah, were under an evacuation warning, officials said.

On July 25, 2018, Firefighters from the USFS San Bernardino National Forest, CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department and several local public safety agencies responded to a series of wildland fires. Crews had contained just 10 percent of it, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
