In California, there are wildfires blazing and destroying everything in its path.  In Mather, California there were 13,000 firefighters fighting the forest fires and 2,300 national guard members were asked to fight the fires.  Nearly 600,000 acres were burned.

 

During the month of November, California was fighting approximately 17 large fires including the largest in the state’s recorded history, the Camp fire. It has been a terrible experience for those residents that have lost everything to the fires.  The Camp fire has been fully contained since November 25, 2018. The Camp fire that started this disaster killed at least 85 people.

The campfire has destroyed 10,500 homes and burned an area about the size of Chicago. The campfire is the most deadliest and destructive fire in California history.  On top of the 85 that died, hundreds are still missing.  Police think that a campfire or an outage of a transmission line started the main fire.
