A Fierce Firestorm Raging wildfires sweep through Southern California

by Claudia Atticot (source: TIME for kids)

Fast-moving wildfires devoured hundreds of homes and buildings in four counties in Southern California in recent days. So far, more than 20,000 residents have been evacuated. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared a state of emergency.

Total Devastation

Record heat and low humidity coupled with strong, dry Santa Ana winds gusting up to 75 miles per hour fanned flames from Los Angeles to three neighboring counties. Riverside County was the hardest hit.
