Thousands evacuated in California due to wildfire

Steph Deschamps / October 27, 2020

 

Local authorities decided to evacuate 60,000 people Monday in Irvine, in the southwest of the US state of California, due to the rapid spread of a wildfire, according to the Los Angeles Times. In just a few hours, more than 200 hectares of land have already burned down.

 

The fire threatens parts of the town of Irvine, about 70 km southeast of Los Angeles. Some 500 firefighters fight the flames on the ground and from the air. A strong wind allowed the fire to spread faster. The causes of the fire are still unknown at this time.
