In a marked shift from last weekend, when numerous fires were out of control and as little as five per cent contained, crews battling the key fire fronts are now reporting containment as high as 35 per cent, and in some cases, 50 per cent containment.

Another CalFire spokesman said roughly 40,000 people were under evacuation orders statewide, many from a pair of fires burning close together at the southern end of the Mendocino National Forest.

Officials say 20 people who had been reporting missing in California's devastating wildfires are now accounted for.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Thursday firefighters made some gains and the blaze is now a third contained. This has been a tough fire season, which traditionally goes until the end of October and that means the worse could still be to come.

At a separate news conference on Wednesday, Governor Jerry Brown said the Carr Fire typified a "new normal" authorities are encountering, as large, extremely intense and swiftly spreading wildfires occur more often over a longer fire season. They burned 14 homes and threatened 12,000 more.

A 100-square-mile (259-square-kilometer) fire near Yosemite National Park prompted evacuation orders for the community of Wawona inside the park, which has fewer than 200 residents. "A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior".
