It is as if nature contracted the biggest demolition company in the state and sent it out to literally destroy Paradise. One fire ruined an entire city, so fast that most of the damage was done in less than 24 hours.
Wildfires are becoming more ferocious than ever. Powerful, fast with extreme destruction. Everyone thought that 2017 was the most devastating year of wildfires in the history of California and suddenly comes the Camp Fire. Fire so ruinous, that according to the latest update by Cal Fire on Wednesday, 11.21.2018, the camp fire has claimed 153,336 acres - 80% contained, 13,503 residences, 514 commercial and 4,404 other buildings are destroyed with more than 5,100 structures threatened by the fire. http://www.fire.ca.gov/current_incidents/incidentdetails/Index/2277
It is an undeniable fact that most wildfires are created by humans, and since the number of humans moving into the woods have increased dramatically. Wild-land Urban Interface or WUI is a habitable and transitional zone between civilized human development and un-occupied land. Humans have been invading the forest and the results are not pleasing.
With extremely dry conditions, drought, wind and increase of temperature, California and its massive mountains and majestic forests along with human are the fundamental ingredient to the mega fires.
Mega fires is a term used to explain a massive fire. A fire as catastrophic as the Camp fire, can ruin an entire city in just few hours. This is the new trend of California wildfires. They are bigger, hostile and full of anger and the wrecking level is of a mega magnitude.
We are heartbroken for those who lost everything. The holidays is here, and there are thousands of people in tents and shelters trying to figure out how on earth they ended up there and how to get out.
