The Wildfire Ravages and Engulf the town of Caldor, in North California
INTERNATIONAL: when it comes to massive wildfire it is the United States that always reels under the fuming fire.
The Caldor Fire is an active wildfire burning in El Dorado County, California, about 15 miles (24 km) southeast
of Placerville. By August 30, 2021, it had burned more than 177,260 acres with 14% containment.
Currently, the Caldor town of North California is witnessing its raging wildfire and the evacuation has been maintained.
The Caldor Fire has already torn through more than 700sq km (270 sq miles), razing hundreds of buildings. On Monday, the blaze roared towards South Lake Tahoe, the main resort town in a popular holiday area straddling the California-Nevada border.
“The firefighting conditions, the fuels, are historic,” said Cal Fire Incident Commander Jeff Veik, According to the San Francisco Chronicle. “We will put this fire out. But it’s not going to be today.”
The fires are being driven by a historic drought that has left swaths of the region parched as man-made climate change takes a visible – and painful – toll, and people living in the area are forced to flee.
It has been reported that approximately 22,000 inhabitants were asked to move out whereas other thousands were on the road to escape the devastating fuming scorching fire.
