Yet another county in California is facing mass evacuations due to wildfires. On Thursday, Vegetation in Sonoma county, near Geyserville caught fire.

2019 has brought a lot of wildfires within California. The latest has been dubbed the Kincade Fire and has been burning since the 24th October. People living around the area have been ordered to evacuate. 180,000 people in northern California have been put under orders of evacuation.

The Kincade fire is being aided by the high winds. This is not helping the fire fighters who are battling to put it out. Some have lost their homes in the blaze. Jets are being used to drop retardant onto the forest area so as to stop the spreading of the fire.

Furthermore, 34 counties have had their power shut off. This is due to fear of the extent of the wildfires led Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) to initiate a precautionary blackout, the largest in state history. The Kincade Fire began seven minutes after a nearby power line was damaged, but PG&E has not yet confirmed if the power glitch started the blaze.

We hope that everyone around the Kincade Fire is safe and being looked after. We cannot begin to understand the devastation this is causing. California fires can now be expected every year, so sadly, this does not seem like the end of these horrible events.
