California Wildfires

Firefighters are battling to contain wildfires in Northern California.

15 separate blazes have killed at least ten people and destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses.

Fanned by high temperatures and dry conditions, the 15 fires broke out over the weekend and spread to cover an estimated 73,000 acres.

Efforts to control the fires, which are sweeping through the state’s world-famous wine country, are being helped by more favourable weather conditions.
