Fires are too easy to set and useful for clearing out people you don't want living there. I believe many of these California fires are acts of arson. It's only been in the last 10 -15 years that I ever remember hearing about fires consuming entire towns out there. The number of them and the damage done far exceeds anything I can remember before the early 2000's. Agenda 2030 or the Chinese I don't, perhaps both have a part to play in these horrible fires.

I have family heading down to firefight, the situation is very dire and could spread. Indeed, sometimes the fires are human started by error or other.

Hoping for safety for all.

I know some people at the Feather River hospital there.

The fire came on them so fast that staff were loading patients in their POV's and driving them away just ahead of the flames.

Driven by hot desert winds, the wildfire raced into Paradise, devouring the equivalent of 80 football pitches a minute.

The town sits on a ridge and the few roads out quickly became clogged with traffic as 27,000 people tried to flee, many driving through walls of flame.

Some motorists abandoned their cars and ran for their lives with children and pets in their arms.


"Football pitch" is apparently what most of the rest of the English speaking world calls a soccer field. If I'm not mistaken it's basically the same length as an American football field.

Sounds like the town was overtaken rapidly. Let's hope there aren't people who were trapped and perished in the flames/smoke.


Where did they get those pictures, those look like sixties and early seventy cars in that picture. How old are those pictures?

As of the last hour, 9 dead, 32 missing and 6000+ homes destroyed. I know we kick California around a lot but I know no one would wish this on any of it's citizens.

When I used to go deeper into California, I saw a ton of classic cars driving around.

Got plenty of issues with that state, but I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

Hope the people can move fast enough, but there are so many choke points and so many people....

I’m s good 100 miles south of Paradise, near Sacramento, and the day was eerie.

Only way to describe it.

There was so much smoke in the air that it was actually chilly,

But the sun felt like this one warm “spot”, isolated from the rest of the day; imagine being in a very large, cold, room, and having someone shine a very directional heat lamp on you.

Kind of gave me the willies.

Paradise was a very popular place for retired folks, so I can imagine that age and infirmities really hindered the evaluation process.

So sad.

ETA:

News reports are showing abandoned retirement homes/communities in the town with walking frames, wheelchairs, and canes littering the walkways.

That got me.

I'm fairly sure that's the exact spot the camp Scottish reporter from the Beeb was reporting from last night...

This is fire country and what happens.

I know every year when there are tornados or hurricanes there are people who can't understand why people bother with living there. I could say the same about places like this, but as tragic as this is, and we get these stories year after year, people will come back and rebuild.

There is a drought things are not as usual, i lived in Paradise for years and outside orville over 20 years and never saw any fires but one small one in paradise.
oregon and Ca and Wa are all dry and windy right now and I am hoping our wells don't dry up even along the coast they have been getting low.


That topography is causing Desert to exist from Cali to Chile. It is so normal to have droughts on the western side of the Mtn's that "Death Valley" got its name in the 1800's.


What I find on ATS is that many don't remember that the Sacramento Valley is prime river bottom farm land from years of flooding. That's why there are all those big dams and reservoirs.There is the Feather River, the Sacramento River the American River , Mokelumne River, San Joaquin River, Cosumnes River and others an creeks of course.

Northern Ca on its own is as large as many states and it is nothing like the So end it is lush and the People have never seen a movie star
