Fire in California – level 2
Firefighters in California are battling a big fire. It expanded to around 130 acres in just a few hours.
Firefighters who were fighting another fire came to help. Planes dropped fire-retardant onto the flames to stop them.
Nobody was injured in this fire, but fire crews are getting ready for at least 200 evacuations. An evacuation centre was set up in a church.
Difficult words: battle (a fight), expand (get bigger), fire-retardant (a thing that stops fire).
