On September 9, the Doe Fire, the August Complex’s main fire, overtook the 2018 Mendocino Complex (which devastated 459,123 acres) to become both the largest wildfire on record in California history.

The geographic area that has burned is larger than the state of Rhode Island.

A day later, the Doe Fire also merged with the Elkhorn Fire (originally a separate incident) and the Hopkins Fire.
