Firefighters control over half of large-scale California wildfires

LOS ANGELES: Firefighters said Thursday that they had absorbed nearly half of the gruesome explosion in Los Angeles County in the form of a fire, as a fire season that killed dozens of people in the west of the U.S. And had expected it.
The burning bobcat fire outside Los Angeles was lit up on about 113,000 acres at night, John Clearwater, a spokesman for the Angeles National Forest, said in a written statement.
The wildfire, which broke out on September 6, is one of the largest in recorded Los Angeles County history. Clearwater said that around 1,600 personnel are currently deployed to fight it.
The blast on Tuesday contained only 17%, and the crew nearly tripled its control by Thursday morning. At its peak, the flames were designed to destroy the Mount Wilson Observatory, originally built in 1904 in the San Gabriel Mountains outside Los Angeles.
Fire season 2020 CaliforniaOregon, and Washington have been particularly ferocious, though the Blaze has been somewhat easily spotted in late September.
Since August 15, a fire in California has killed 26 people and killed 10 other western states.
Already 2020 is the worst fire season in California history, with the state’s five largest recorded wildfires burning in just one year.
The record was first broken in 2018, and scientists say the fire season is likely to intensify in the US West due to factors including land development, forest management and climate change.
According to California Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire, 3.6 million acres have been burned since the beginning of the year. Another 2 million acres have been burned in Washington and Oregon.
The Forest Service warned that it expects more warm, dry weather to arrive in Los Angeles over the weekend, possibly dealing with a setback to progress to bring the Bobcat Fire under control.
