Fire Ravaging Southern California

Natalie McCaffery

Sparking up on November 8, 2019, the Woolsey fire’s cause is still undetermined. As of 9:00 PST, November 14, the Woolsey fire has burned 98,362 acres and is 52% contained. Breaching upon the homes of movie stars and turning famous movie sets into ash, this fire has conquered most of the famous, Malibu, California and continues to spread. Some monuments recently devoured by the flames include the “M*A*S*H” TV set area, the Peter Strauss and Reagan ranches, and the Paramount Ranch. This inferno has pronounced three dead and has destroyed at least 504 structures.

At least two other fires have also ignited in California recently, the Hill fire and the Camp fire.

The Hill fire burned 4,531 acres in southern California and was 96% contained as of Wednesday morning. The Camp fire scorched over 138,000 northern California acres and has trampled more than 10,000 structures — 8,650 of which were homes. This fire is 35% contained.
