Two of the Northern California wildfires, the Dixie Fire and the Fly Fire, merged on July 25, as the blaze continued to grow, according to a local media report.
Authorities reported on Sunday that the Dixie Fire had grown to over 190,000 acres and was 21 percent contained, while the Fly Fire had burnt 4,300 acres with 5 percent containment.
