Wildfires continue to roar through California

Thousands of Americans have been forced to evacuate their homes in California as wildfires rip through the State.

Firefighters spent the last week battling six major blazes which erupted in southern California.

High winds drove the fires through tens of thousands of acres in just a few hours last week, forcing authorities to issue a purple alert, America’s highest level warning.


US President Donald Trump has declared a state of emergency.

So far, only one person has died from this latest blaze.

The fires have forced more than 200,000 people to evacuate and destroyed more than 800 structures.

There are also concerns the blaze will seriously hit California’s multi-million dollar agriculture industry.
