Still Waters

A deadly wildfire which has destroyed more than 700 homes in California is now the largest blaze in the state's recorded history.

The Thomas fire has burned more than 1000sq km - an area greater than New York City, Brussels and Paris combined.

The blaze broke out in Santa Paula in early December and has moved west towards the coast, one of several major fires in California in recent months.

Thousands of firefighters have been deployed to bring it under control.

Having gone through the fire season here in British Columbia I commiserate with my southern neighbours.

Well, part of the problem is yuppie homeowners haven't let them burn off the duff for 3 decades.....Don't want your house smokey or ashy? Well it is now......

As well as vegetation type, terrain and repeated droughts.

Terrifying!

Nature sure doesn't take prisoners :hmm:

Stay safe if you're anywhere near that part of the State.

Yeah, that vid shows me, being far away, just how horrific and devastating these recent and ongoing Cali fires are.
