So far, at least 31 people have lost their lives in the massive wildfires that have been raging across California, engulfing and destroying thousands of homes in the process.


As of Sunday, November 11, 2018, 196,000 acres have been burned and the worst inferno, the Camp Fire, has destroyed 6,435 homes, as well as 260 commercial structures.

As reported by ABC News, there are a total of 228 people missing and five firefighters have been injured while attempting to battle the blaze.

The Camp Fire hell isn't expected to weaken any time soon since the gusty weather ramped up on Sunday, and red flag warnings have been issued in several parts of the North of California.



The winds could reach a speed of 50 mph across the northern Sierra Nevada mountain, as well as some parts of the Sacramento Valley.

According to Jerry Brown, the Governor of California, more than 149,000 people have been evacuated as a result of the fires, including a man named Shawn Field, from Paradise.



Field revealed that his son was home when the fire started threatening the structure and that he only had around 10 minutes to pack a few essentials into a backpack before fleeing.

The Fields are currently staying with friends in Chico, and, even though they lost everything to the flames, their spirits have been boosted by the kindness and support they received from both friends and strangers.



It has been reported that, as of Sunday, the Camp Fire inferno was 25 percent contained, while the Woolsey Fire, in Southern California, was only 15 percent contained. As for the Hill Fire, near Thousand Oaks, its containment was around 70 percent.

Thousand Oaks was also recently in the news after a gunman opened fire inside a country bar, killing a total of 12 people, including survivors of the terrifying mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas in 2017.
