Blaze en­gulfs South­ern Cal­i­for­nia

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A fire burn­ing out of con­trol in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia has grown to a mas­sive 8000 hectares, as res­i­dents in an area north of here were forced to evac­u­ate. The blaze, which has been dubbed the “Sand Fire” af­ter a nearby neigh­bour­hood, was only 10 per­cent con­tained as of July 24. The fire has been burn­ing in Cal­i­for­nia’s Santa Clarita Val­ley since July 22, but has now shifted to threaten more pop­u­lated ar­eas, such as the Sand Canyon neigh­bour­hood of Santa Clarita.
