Over a dozen wildfires are currently scorching through Northern California. At least 119,000 acres have been destroyed in the fires, about three times larger than the size of Washington D.C. Over 20,000 people have been evacuated in this chaotic event.

“This is really serious. It’s moving fast. The heat, the lack of humidity and the winds are all driving a very dangerous situation and making it worse,” said Governor Jerry Brown. “It’s not under control by any means. But we’re on it in the best way we know how.”
