Varying degrees of fire restrictions are in place on many other federal lands in Colorado.

One man is in custody and facing arson charges for starting the fire. Dry fuel in the timber remained a concern as well, he said. It was 43 percent contained on Saturday, the officials said.

The Klamathon Fire near the OR border had grown to 21,803 acres Saturday morning and was 5 percent contained, with evacuations in place.

Firefighters are struggling against dozens of wildfires across the western United States with soaring temperatures hampering efforts to control them.

Officials issued a flash flood watch for the 220-square-kilometre area burned by a fire that started June 1. Elsewhere in Northern California, the County Fire has charred 88,375 acres (35,764 hectares) in sparsely populated wooded areas of Napa and Yolo Counties. "Cal Fire has been nothing but awesome and supportive, and we are overwhelmed by the brotherhood and support services they have provided".

A photo of Feller in the hospital posted on the page shows he suffered severe burns to his face.

Feller "is recovering well, considering the injuries", reads the GoFundMe page set up to help the firefighter.

He said numerous people he has talked to were either traveling or away for work when the blaze started Thursday and have not been able to find out the status of their homes. "They have to know how to get out of their community or away from their home if a wildfire does strike".

One of the largest fires burning is the Klamathon Fire in Siskiyou County, which was up to 22,000 acres as of Saturday evening and just 20 percent contained.

In Utah, meanwhile, authorities allowed the return of some residents who fled a wildfire near a popular fishing lake 80 miles (130 kilometers) southeast of Salt Lake City.

Firefighters increased containment of a central San Diego County fire that rapidly spread over 400 acres, destroyed 18 structures and damaged eight. Officials believe human activity sparked the blaze, but an exact cause hasn't been determined.

Firefighters have been able to build containment around several destructive wildfires burning in California.

The biggest fires burning in the Mountain West states are the Spring Creek fire in Colorado and the Dollar Ridge fire in Utah.

The fire was earlier reported to have destroyed 40 buildings, but the latest Cal Fire estimate put the number at 15.

North-northwest winds were blowing the embers and flames downhill and the fire was about a mile from downtown Goleta, county fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni said.

Multiple structures are threatened, damaged or destroyed, Brady said.

Other major fires in the state are close to being fully contained.
