California has burned more than 4.2 million acres since March.
The state has been in a statewide emergency since April 20, when the deadly El Niño weather event caused a record-breaking heat wave, which prompted a state-wide evacuation of more than a million people.
The fire season in the state, however, has been far from perfect, and the wildfire season in northern California is now on track to be the worst on record, with more than 1,400 new wildfires burning on Saturday, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
The latest tally comes after two major fires burned in southern California, one near the California state line and another near the San Francisco Bay.
The wildfires in Southern California have destroyed at least 1,700 homes, according, according the National Interagency Fire Center.
Firefighters were battling the fires in several counties as of Friday, including Ventura, Santa Barbara, Orange, Riverside and Santa Cruz counties, according KCRA-TV.
The fires are expected to spread rapidly across the region, burning nearly 800,000 hectares (1.7 million acres) of land, according California Department on Forestry and Emergency Management Director Tom Tamiore.
The two major wildfires are set to burn out in the coming weeks.
The California Department for Forestry and Recreation issued a statewide evacuation order for the state’s Central Valley, which includes San Bernardino, Sonoma, Riverside, Sonora and Imperial counties.
The evacuation order also includes the communities of Napa, Ventura, Riverside Rancho, Ventura and the towns of Santa Cruz, Solano, Santa Maria and Monterey.
The order calls for the evacuation of all people who live in or have lived in those communities.
Officials have also issued an evacuation order in northern San Diego County.
The area has been under a mandatory evacuation order since May 20.
The evacuations are in effect until the fires are extinguished.
The county is still dealing with an ongoing firestorm that has been fueled by drought conditions, the Associated Press reported.
The National Weather Service reported that the fire season was already in the mid-30s, but the fire weather forecast for the region remains favorable, according a report from the National Weather Services office.
The weather service said that if the fires continue to burn, there could be dangerous flash flooding and erosion along with wind gusts of 80 mph (130 km/h).
