Fire crews racing against time to contain fire before the expected winds

one year ago

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said that they are expecting high winds threatening to heighten fire danger.

The department is preparing to face the situation by strengthening the fire fighters lines, and observing the fire spots as the expected winds approach.

The California Camp Fire began Nov. 8 and killed 71 people, and destroyed the entire city of Paradise. Until the moment the deadly blaze is only 55% contained.

There are also forecasts for rain which can help the fire fighters in the midweek.

President Trump is expected to visit Northern California on Saturday, as authorities confirmed Friday night the dead toll of 71 victims, and said they're trying to locate 1,000 others.
