6 large California wildfires have scorched 141000 acres

Firefighters on Thursday battled raging wildfires across southern California that have forced tens of thousands of people to flee their homes, including residents on the outskirts of Los Angeles, America's second-largest city.

Little flame was visible by late Tuesday, but in the morning fire exploded on the steep slopes of Sepulveda Pass, closing a section of heavily traveled Interstate 405 and destroying four homes. Orange dots indicate 12-24 hours old, yellow 24-48 hours.

Thursday's fire prompted closure of state Highway 76 in both directions and evacuations in an area near the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base.

While October is supposed to start the region's rainy season, the past two months have been extremely dry, with just.11 inches of rain reported in Downtown Los Angeles since October and no traceable amounts of rain reported at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, Clark said. An estimated 600 people are currently being housed on the grounds, and still need donations and resources. If we needed a reminder of this, we got it with this year's dramatic season. The National Weather Service warns that wind speeds will increase through Friday, and that the fires have already begun to spread to San Diego.

However, mandatory evacuations in the area have been lifted.

"It's starting to appear that the likelihood of seeing these sorts of events is increasing", he says. Fifty-two fire engines were deployed to the scene.

Ruby Rose added her concerns: "These fires are so scary and I am hoping everyone is OK and praying for the people in those areas and the brave fire fighters and volunteers". The latter popped it back into place and continued working, Schuler said.

The crowdfunding website has dozens of fundraisers for specific families and victims who lost their homes due to the fires. Help came from the air.

Every day firefighters in Los Angeles receive a brush burning index report that indicates the fire danger.

The Eagle Creek Fire burns as golfers play at the Beacon Rock Golf Course in North Bonneville, Washington, in early September.

The winds on Thursday were expected to be the strongest, with the National Weather Service calling it a "significant period" for critical fire conditions.

Things could be worse for the marijuana industry in the state, Allen said, except for the fact that particularly hard-hit Ventura County does not issue permits for pot farms. "Too close to my house".

Across the wide I-405 freeway from the fire, the Getty Center art complex was closed to protect its collection from smoke damage. Trying to save these homes. Before you donate to a charity, especially online, make sure to verify that it's credible.

Can the West as a whole get it now?

"It's been a very intense year", Allen said. "But these are also days that show the resilience of our city", Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said, thanking firefighters from Los Angeles and other agencies and all city personnel.

The app suggested backstreets of the mansion-blanketed L.A. neighborhood of Bel Air instead, turning onto Bellagio Road, a thoroughfare that runs into the heart of Bel Air.
