Patti Wold, a spokeswoman for the National Park Service, which is investigating the cause of the Carr Fire, said Sunday the fire was believed to have been caused by a malfunction with a camper trailer but additional details were unavailable. In contrast to the current largest fire in state history, the 2017 Thomas Fire, which burned for over a month before being contained, the Mendocino Complex has attained this enormous size in under two weeks.
"Yes, we have plenty of water", CalFire Chief Scott McLean said by telephone, adding that the two largest blazes in California this week - the Carr Fire and the Mendocino Complex Fire - were each ringed by at least three major reservoirs.
Brown's call for help came shortly before authorities called on residents in Glenn and Colusa counties in Northern California to evacuate as a wildfire there continues to grow. That likely references either future federal funding assistance or his approval to move water stored in federal facilities to help fight the California fires. And befuddled scientists who spoke with TIME could only guess at what Trump meant in his tweets.
It's proper to note that the environmental policies being promoted by the Trump White House will make climate change worse.
"I sort of had to suppress a chuckle when I read the President's tweet", says Glen MacDonald, a distinguished professor of geography and ecology at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Celtic, the big rival of Rangers, began the defence of its league title with a 3-1 win over Livingston on Saturday. It is a tough one to take but we should be incredibly proud of today.
Violent Weekend Leaves at Least Five Dead, Dozens Injured Across Chicago
The man suffered gunshot wounds to his body and neck and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The hospital, however, denied this but acknowledged the "unusually high volume of patients" over a 24-hour period.
"It boggles the mind", said LeRoy Westerling, a fire and climate expert at UC Merced.
"The water that reaches the ocean is what's left after we've diverted most of the water away for cities and farms, and what little is left is barely enough for California's aquatic ecosystems and the fisheries", he said. Denham hosted a visit to the area last week by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, whose agency has obligingly attacked state water policies.
While a heated issue in the state, it has nothing to do with fire suppression efforts, experts say.
"We must be able to actively manage our forests and not face frivolous litigation when we try to remove these fuels", he wrote. "It's really a head-scratcher".
A helicopter drops water while battling the Ranch Fire, part of the Mendocino Complex Fire, near Clearlake Oaks, California, on August 5, 2018. "Must also tree clear to stop fire spreading!" But, several of the fast-moving fires now burning in California have scorched areas filled with grass and shrubs - not in forests filled with dead trees.
Doing so means devoting attention to a complex problem that involves science, nature and government action.
Before his tweet on Sunday, Trump accepted California Gov. That fire, which is now 43% contained, has destroyed more than 1,000 homes and burned over 160,000 acres. "These kinds of terrible situations bring people together, regardless of the lesser kind of ideologies and partisan considerations", Brown said in a statement.
