I watched a couple of videos that show one town (among many others) completely destroying town of Paradise - 27 thousands people. The fire came so fast that there was very short time to move. Over 70 people are found dead now, but this can be worse:
What caused this terrible fire? Drought, heavy wind, building infrastructure inside the forest....
This is a terrible, terrible situation with such vast numbers of people killed in such a horrible manner. This on going situation seems to have gone viral for it is in the news here. As with the fire, it appears to be high winds fanning the fire with out restraint.
For as the vast loss of property and lives, my self am not familar with that area, in this manner, I do not have the right to speak out on it. Simply to say with hope and trust, no more lives will be lost and the fire placed under control.
yes, it was terrible, there are even some conspiracy theories since the temperature was so high that many constructions were on fire, even with metal parts. Some people were able to make the movies during their escape, everything along the road on both sides was in fire. They were moving in the middle of the day, but the smoke was so heavy you couldn't see the sun.
