Hundreds of thousands of residents have been forced to flee their homes and over 20 people have been killed in California as several wildfires continue to burn out of control since Thursday. In southern California, 30,000 hectares have burned, people have died and scores of homes have been destroyed. Tens of thousands of residents have been forced to evacuate with no idea if they would have a home to go back to. In northern California, the devastation is far worse than the one in the south. The camp fire has charred 36,000 hectares so far, making the former paradise suddenly became the hell. At least nine people have been killed and 6,700 structures destroyed, which is a record high in California fire history.
