Fire in California

This news is from California. There is a fire. It is a big one. It expands quickly. 130 acres are on fire.

Planes drop fire-retardant on the fire. Some firemen stop fighting smaller fires. All of them must fight this big fire.

Everybody is fine, but some people are in danger. If people leave their homes, they can go to a church. The church is ready for them to stay there.

Difficult words: expand (get bigger), drop (put down), fire-retardant (a thing that stops fire).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
