Fire in California: firefighters seem helpless

The fires are still out of control in California (United States). Nearly 200,000 people were evacuated in 24 hours on Monday, October 28, and it is not over because firefighters are visibly overwhelmed by the magnitude of the fires. New outbreaks have appeared on the heights of Los Angeles and they are progressing very quickly because of the wind. It all started with a bushfire along Highway 405, which then threatened motorists. Meter by meter, some 500 firefighters fight, supported by helicopters water bombers.

But their strike force seems very derisory against a monster of flames. 3,300 homes had to be evacuated urgently, some are reduced to ashes. “Leave your houses “, urges Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles. “We have already seen people think of fighting the flames with simple hoses. Do not do that. If there is one thing you can not replace, it's you“, insisted the elected representative of” the city of angels “.
