California’s wildfire crisis deepened on Tuesday. Due to strong winds, the fierce fire in the forests of the state was seen raging. The people living in the surrounding areas are facing a huge problem due to the flames going far and wide.
According to reports, a minor fire broke out in a rural mountainous area and power was cut as a precaution.
According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire), it is the second largest wildfire in California. The Dixie fire, which began in mid-July in the rugged Sierra Nevada range northeast of San Francisco, has engulfed 604,000 acres by Tuesday morning.
Let us tell you that this was the first time recorded in a month, which destroyed 34,000 acres of land in 24-hours.
Doug Uliberry, a spokesman for Dixie Incident Command, said Monday night that the fires flared up in much of northern California due to strong winds. Over 1,200 homes and other buildings have been lost in the fire due to the massive fire.
Another 16,000 buildings were listed as threatened, with evacuation reckon ranging from 12,000 to 28,000 residents.
