Josh Lister and his family lost their home and belongings after the fire swept through Redding, a city of nearly 100,000 people.

However, the reduced wind speed aided in curtailing the blazes which helped the firefighters to extend the buffer lines. Roughly 15,000 residents have been evacuated.

The fire is believed to have been started by a malfunctioning vehicle on July 23. It's now ranked as the sixth most destructive wildfire in the state's history after killing six and destroying more than a thousand homes. Several roads in the area remained closed.

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

- more than a quarter of what it has pegged for fires, state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesperson Mike Mohler said Wednesday. "You can expect, unfortunately, for that to intensify".

"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.
