UPPER LAKE, Calif. — Wildfires scorching Northern California from the Gold Country to the fringes of Yosemite National Park are also burning through the state’s firefighting budget even as they devour homes and lives. State fire spokesman Mike Mohler says California already has spent more than a quarter of its annual fire budget — at least $125 million — just a month into the budget year. And Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday warned that the state could expect more huge, costly and devastating fires in future. The sixth most destructive wildfire in state history is the week-old Carr Fire near Redding which has killed six people and destroyed more than 1,000 homes. Tens of thousands of people also remain under evacuation orders.
