Since yesterday, in the cities of Santa Paula and Ventura, California, several wildfires have broken out. They have been spreading fast. In those cities which are north of Los Angeles, there are thousands and thousands of homes. All of those residents, at least 27,000, had to evacuate today because of the approaching wildfires. One person has been killed so far. The wildfires are being called the “Thomas fire” and the “Creek fire”. It is not yet known how the wildfires started, but strong winds and dry weather helped the fire. The size of the Thomas fire is equal to about 50 square miles. The Creek fire is smaller, but growing. They also caused a power outage in more than 250,000 homes. Hundreds of buildings have been destroyed as well. There are about 500 firefighters battling the wildfires right now. They say they do not have control of the fire yet, but will not give up. Stay safe, everyone!
