Firefighters in northern California are defeating the savage, ten-day-old fire blaze that has demolished more than 1,000 homes as experts expatriate the neighborhood with a few individuals being discovered alive.

More than 4,200 firefighters are battling the blaze, which has scorched more than 125,800 acres (50,900 hectares) in the scenic Shasta-Trinity region.

California fire captain Robert Veverka and his crew arrived in Redding, California, last Thursday night as gale-force winds whipped the Carr Fire into a flaming tornado.

Sanchez' home was destroyed in the fire.

California Gov. Jerry Brown said Wednesday that fires have become the new normal in California due in large part to the changing weather.

Fire specialists, utility teams, and police have been venturing up endeavors to expel perils, for example, bringing down electrical cables and cracked gas lines.

But their battle to save people's lives and homes have come at a cost.

Six people were killed in the Carr Fire, including two firefighters, two children who perished with their grandmother in a house that burned, and a man who defied an evacuation order to stay put in another home that was consumed by the fire. It is 35 percent contained. That fire is about 40 miles north of the Mendocino Complex Fires.

After days of concern over a number of missing individuals, authorities said Wednesday that all those who had been reported missing have now been accounted for.

"[The] predictions that I see, the more serious predictions of warming and fires to occur later in the century, 2040 or 2050, they're now occurring in real time", Brown said at a news conference on Wednesday in Sacramento.

Mr Veverka, 34, said: "Right now, it's pretty much guaranteed we'll go from fire to fire to fire, until everything is out".

Fire officials said such blazes had been fueled by several years of drought-dessicated vegetation, and stoked by frequent and persistent bouts of erratic winds and triple-digit temperatures.

"People are doing everything they can, but nature is very powerful and we're not on the side of nature", Brown said.
