California Wildfire: The forests of California in America are once again facing severe fire. Due to which the temperature has increased in the surrounding areas and people are forced to bear the heat (California Wildfire Alerts). On Friday, a temperature of 54 degrees Celsius was recorded in Death Valley National Park of California. The same situation is expected to continue on Saturday as well. Earlier in July 1913 also the high temperature was recorded at 57 degree Celsius.
There have been many fires in the northern mountain areas of California in the past. Due to which dozens of houses were destroyed here. This time too people have been asked to move to safer places due to the fire (California Wildfires 2021). A warning has been issued to 2800 people living in an area of 200 square miles. The smoke of the fire was seen rising to a height of thousands of feet on Friday. Firefighters have to work hard to douse the fire. But it is not likely to be extinguished but to increase.
flames rising up to several feet
In many places, the flames have been seen rising up to 100 feet. Due to which firefighters are trying to save the houses first. Since the air is very dry, even dropping water from planes is of no use because the water evaporates before falling on the earth (California Wildfire Aftermath). 1200 people are engaged in this work. The fire has spread rapidly and covered an area of 86 square miles. There is a crisis in many homes in the western states. The National Weather Service has also issued a warning.
Government issued emergency
The California system operator has warned about the light going off. Fires in the forests of northern Oregon remain a threat to transmission lines. The government has also issued emergency. Strong moving hot winds are increasing the fire further. On Saturday, a temperature of 47 degrees Celsius was recorded in Lal Vegas. So far, the city has recorded record temperature four times.
