California's Dixie fire leaves town of Greenville in smoking ruins

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
Wildfires are still ravaging California. The Dixie fire, the largest wildfire in the state, left the mountain town of Greenville in Plumas County in smouldering cinders on Aug. 4.

Plus, the River fire is rapidly spreading, burning homes and forcing thousands to evacuate in two heavily wooded counties northeast of Sacramento in Northern California on Wednesday, generating a towering plume of smoke visible from at least 110 km away.

That wildfire scorched 1,400 acres (566 hectares) in Placer and Nevada counties, with 1,000 acres burnt within the first two hours, said the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

The River fire was less than 160 km south of the enduring Dixie fire, which according to Cal Fire has consumed 278,000 acres and was only 35 per cent contained three weeks after it started.
