Los Angeles has faced the largest wildfire in its history and the images are scary.
Los Angeles has recently faced the largest wildfire in its history as flames took over the Verdugo Mountains. The fires have covered about 7,000 acres, triggering a state emergency.
About 1,000 firefighters fought the wildfire, dubbed as the “La Tuna Fire” that started on Friday, September 1.
By Sunday, the fire had engulfed a large portion of the area, encircling hundreds of vulnerable homes and displacing about 1,400 residents.
However, the mandatory and voluntary evacuations have been lifted, and hundreds of residents were allowed to go home as the fire was 30 percent contained, CNN reports.
Los Angeles Fire Department Battalion Chief Ralph Terrazas told Fox News:
“The biggest factor is weather and the wind. If there is no wind, this fire is relatively easy to put out. The wind changes, it changes our priorities.”
This wildfire is the largest one in history, with fires this big in the area were last recorded about three to four decades ago. The erratic winds combined with the incredibly rising temperatures made the wildfire worse and massive.
According to Buzzfeed, along with fires, heat waves have impacted California this summer, with records hitting a staggering 106 degrees Fahrenheit on the day that fire started.
Christopher Burt, a historian at Weather Underground, said:
“This is the greatest statewide heat wave ever recorded in California.”
