Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL - Lost and Found Name Cor­rec­tion

LOS AN­GE­LES—Fire warn­ings were in place across three west­ern U.S. states on Sun­day as record-break­ing heat threat­ened to feed wild­fires that have black­ened thou­sands of acres (hectares), es­pe­cially in Cal­i­for­nia and New Mex­ico.

The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice said tem­per­a­tures of 120 Fahren­heit (49 Cel­sius) were pos­si­ble in south­west­ern deserts through Wed­nes­day.

“Red flag warn­ings” for po­ten­tial fires cov­ered an area stretch­ing across south­ern Cal­i­for­nia, south­ern Ne­vada and south­ern Ari­zona.

“These ex­treme tem­per­a­tures can be life-threat­en­ing,” the weather ser­vice said on its web­site. The high tem­per­a­tures have joined with a pro­longed dry spell to worsen the fire threat.

The agency de­clared an el­e­vated threat in Cal­i­for­nia’s Santa Bar­bara County from dry con­di­tions and evening winds. More than 2,000 fire­fight­ers there are bat­tling the so-called Sherpa Fire, which had burned 7,811 acres (3,161 hectares) in coastal canyons.

Fire­fight­ers es­ti­mated the fire was 45 per­cent con­tained. The Sherpa Fire broke out on Wed­nes­day and has forced manda­tory evac­u­a­tions in some ar­eas.

Another blaze, the Dog Head Fire, south­east of Al­bu­querque, New Mex­ico, has de­stroyed about two dozen homes and forced evac­u­a­tions.

Al­most 1,000 per­son­nel were fight­ing the blaze that has burned through about 17,615 acres (7,129 hectares) of tim­ber and log­ging zones.
