Carr Fire spread heavily over the weekend reaching closer to towns and homes

With a red flag warning posted for this evening through Saturday, firefighters are continuing to be challenged by the Carr Fire, which now stands at 125,842 acres and remains at 35 percent containment.

Cal Fire said that "steep terrain, erratic winds, and previously unburned fuels are contributing to spot fire potential".

Failure to hold that line would put the evacuated town of Lewiston, just three miles to the west, in harm's way, the spokesman at CalFire added.
