Fire in California – level 3
California firefighters have a new fire to battle within a dry region.
This fire expanded to around 130 acres in just a few hours. The fire spread quickly and this made officials take firefighters and machines from another fire in order to help.
Planes could be seen dropping fire-retardant onto the fire to keep it under control.
There have been no reports of injuries but fire crews are preparing themselves for at least 200 evacuations. Officials reported that an evacuation centre has been set up in a nearby church.
Difficult words: battle (a fight), fire-retardant (a substance that stops fire).
