‘We lost it all in US wildfire’
Blown up... from 7,000 miles away
A BRITISH dad and his family in the US have lost everything after their home was destroyed in the California wildfires.
Keith Durnford, from Southampton, fled with wife Nicole, 40, and son Dylan, four, when houses just yards away were engulfed by flames.
Mr Durnford, 57, said: “We have nothing, absolutely nothing. Everything we worked our lives for is gone…insurance won’t cover us.” Friends set up a Justgiving page to help. THE drone believed to have killed Sally Jones was flown by a pilot more than 7,000 miles away in the US desert.
Pilots at Creech Air Force Base in Indiana Springs, Nevada, push the buttons on the most sophisticated technology to seal the fate of enemy targets.
The base less than 50 miles from Las Vegas has become the hub for remotely piloted aircrafts used to fight terror.
Established in 1942 as a military training camp, it was renamed in 2005 in honour of the late General Wilbur Creech.
