Head here for the latest information on the Carr Fire, including evacuations.

Shasta County authorities are seeking help from the public locating six people listed as missing from the Carr Fire in Shasta County.

Redding Police Sgt. Todd Cogle said they have located 14 of 20 people listed as missing from a Tuesday afternoon press release.

He said at least two of the six people have homes that are still standing and at least one is a transient with no address. They ask anyone with information to call 530-225-4277.

The massive 112,888-acre blaze has destroyed 965 homes and killed two firefighters and four civilians.

It is believed to be the ninth most destructive fire in state history. But while thousands remain evacuated, fire crews have gained some ground and increased containment to 30 percent. 

Fire officials on Tuesday lifted the evacuation order for several communities, including the Happy Valley area, except for the communities of Igo and Ono.

Residents of the River Park Highlands subdivision and some areas in the communities of Summit City and Buckeye can also to return to their homes.

Firefighters from across the United States are being sent to California to help crews stretched to the limit as they battle 17 wildfires across the state, including the Carr Fire.

Cal Fire says firefighters from 10 states are already helping and another six states will send resources this week.

The agency says the out-of-state fire crews will relieve exhausted California firefighters who have been working non-stop for two weeks.
