40,000 People Evacuated in California As Wildfires Rage On.

by | Oct 25, 2019

About 40,000 people have been evacuated from their homes as wildfires rage through California.

Firefighters are struggling to contain the blazes as they engulf land and burn buildings in the north and south of the Western US state.

The fires are being driven by powerful winds, which are expected to worsen in southern California over the weekend.

California is still recovering from wildfires last year that killed about 100 people.

The Kincade Fire, which started on Wednesday, has burned through 16,000 acres (6500 hectares) of land in Sonoma County – one of California’s best-known wine regions.

Mike McGuire, a state senator, said more than 1,300 firefighters were tackling the blaze. There are unconfirmed reports that the Kincade fire erupted near a damaged high-voltage transmission line.

It is not known what caused the other fires.
