At least 31 people are dead as entire California cities flee wildfires

Over the weekend, three major wildfires in California wreaked havoc.

So far, more than 190,000 acres have burned, and 272,000 people have been evacuated. Around 8,200 firefighters are battling the flames, according to state officials.

In Northern California: A blaze dubbed the Camp fire has destroyed 6,700 structures, making it the single most destructive fire in the state’s history. At least 29 people died as the flames swept into the town of Paradise. This makes it the third-deadliest fire in the state’s history.

In Southern California: Two wildfires, the Woolsey fire and the Hill fire, have caused more than 200,000 residents to flee their homes. This includes people living in Thousand Oaks, where they had to evacuate less than a day after a mass shooting.

The Woolsey fire is around 15% contained. Many celebrities have had to abandon their homes because of it, including the Kardashians, Jake Paul, and Lady Gaga.

Trumps’ initial response was to blame people, rather than acknowledge those who died. He finally acknowledged first responders, but still said nothing about the loss of life.

What a dick.

Anyway, this thing is far from over.
