The unidentified firefighter was killed on Monday while battling the Ranch Fire, one of two blazes that make up the Mendocino Complex, which has already charred about 349,000 acres (141,200 hectares), the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) said. It is 86 percent contained, with full containment expected on Wednesday. "Fire crews continue working on bringing bring the east edge of the fire back in to the Mendocino National Forest, but obstacles and access still prove to be challenging", Cal Fire said.

Almost 19,000 acres of the Stanislaus National Forest and about 11,000 acres of Yosemite National Forest also have been razed.

If all goes well, firefighters still don't expect to the have the massive blaze completely contained until sometime in September.
