Fire­fight­ers strug­gle to con­tain South­ern Cal­i­for­nia blaze

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Thou­sands of fire­fight­ers bat­tled to con­tain a blaze tear­ing through Cal­i­for­nia’s Santa Clarita val­ley, de­stroy­ing homes and a pop­u­lar film­ing lo­ca­tion, and threat­en­ing ac­tress Tippi He­dren’s an­i­mal sanctuary. The so-called Sand Fire in Los An­ge­les has scorched more than 132 square kilo­me­tres of brush, threat­en­ing at least 2000 prop­er­ties and forc­ing an es­ti­mated 20,000 res­i­dents to flee. About 10,000 homes have been evac­u­ated since the fire broke out on July 22. – AFP
