California Wildfires Continue to Burn Thousands of Acres Every Day

Every day we see and hear about the political squabbles and worldwide outrage that dominates news coverage, but one of the stories that seems to keep getting buried under other news coverage is the wildfires out west, especially in California.

The two newest fires – the Glass fire in Napa County and the Zogg fire in Shasta County – have forced thousands of residents to evacuate and have burned thousands of structures. The Glass fire destroyed a winery owned by a family with over a century in the business.

The owner of the winery called the fire “a cremation.” The Glass fire jumped two rivers over the weekend and has continued to scorch land and structures. Over 1,800 people have evacuated, while another 5,000 are under notice to be prepared to evacuate.

The Zogg fire burned through 7,000 acres of property this weekend.

In addition to these two large fires, CalFire is battling two brand new fires that started this weekend in Napa and Sonoma Counties. Additionally, the August Complex fire has burned 870,000 acres, and authorities have fought this fire since last month.

These fires are just a few of the 25 blazes that firefighters are currently battling. This year alone authorities have fought 8,100 different fires. Dry conditions and another heat wave continue to add to the danger of more blazes flaring up.

Needless to say, there’s no end in sight for those fighting these blazes. Continue to pray for the people of California and for those who are battling the fires.
