Wildfires kills At Least 11 Peoples in California 



Northern California wildfires have consumed thousands of homes and businesses and have taken at least 11 lives.

CNN.com reports that more than a dozen wildfires are raging across the region. The biggest wildfires are in Napa Valley and other surrounding areas of the state’s wine country.

Videos and pictures of the devastation caused by the fires are emerging, and are both heartbreaking and frightening. Many people have lost everything to the flames.

Most of the fires began Sunday night. In addition to the 11 people who lost their lives, over 100 have suffered burns and injuries. They are currently being treated at Napa and Sonoma area hospitals.

In less than two days, the wildfires have covered over 119,032 acres in California.

Many residents barely evacuated in time. One reported seeing the sky turn red and smelling smoke, and it wasn’t long before the fire arrived. Another resident said she had less than four minutes to evacuate before the flames engulfed her home.

Firefighters are working around the clock to try to contain the fires. The weather on Tuesday is reportedly supposed to aid them in their efforts.

Join us in praying for the people of California, many of whom have lost so much to these fires.
