California has been hit with one massive blaze after another, including a blaze not far from the Delta Fire that last month burned about 1,100 homes and killed eight people.
Flames from a backfire burned around a fire truck battling the Delta Fire in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Calif., on Thursday.
Officials say the largest wildfire on record in California is expected to be fully contained by Sunday, more than six weeks after it started.
Almost 300 homes were considered threatened, but the blaze was not burning near any large towns, fire spokesman Brandon Vacarro said.
The Delta Fire, which broke out on Wednesday afternoon, tripled its size by Thursday morning, and by Thursday evening, it spread over more than 8,900 hectares without being contained at all.
"Multiple commercial vehicles and several structures have been damaged or destroyed" so far, according to the Northern California Geographic Center.

The fire has residents of nearby Dunsmuir on edge, amid heavy smoke, said Richard Dinjes, executive director of the city's chamber of commerce.
The fire also was disrupting train routes in the area and local schools, at least one of which evacuated.
Earlier, traffic was also backing up as major roads closed in the area of the fire - namely, northbound I-5 at the Fawndale exit and southbound I-5 at the intersection of Highway 89.
