The state of California is dealing with three wildfires at once. Officials call these wildfires the largest and deadliest in California history. More than 300,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes statewide as three wildfires continue to rage through areas of northern and southern California.
As more than 8,000 firefighters work to battle the flames, a total of 228 people have been unaccounted for and the death toll has risen to 31. According to the Associated Press, California Governor Jerry Brown is requesting emergency aid from President’s Trump administration after stating that climate change is the cause of the fires. But, the President is blaming the fires on poor forest management.
