California wildfires: Bobcat Fire rages on leaving charred earth as evacuation orders remain

CA, 26 Sep 2020
Wildfires in California continued to rage on Sept. 23 and 24, leaving behind scorched remains as evacuation orders remain in place.

California firefighters used flamethrowers in the San Gabriel Mountains to back-burn terrain in the path of the Bobcat Fire. Another team of firefighters worked to try and contain the blaze in California’s Sierra National Forest.

Firefighters on Thursday said they had contained about half of a massive blaze ravaging Los Angeles County for nearly a month, as a fire season that has killed dozens across the U.S. West Coast took another hopeful turn.

The Bobcat Fire burning outside Los Angeles held steady overnight at about 113,000 acres burned, John Clearwater, spokesman for Angeles National Forest, said in a written statement.

The wildfire, which broke out Sept. 6, is one of the largest in recorded Los Angeles County history. About 1,600 personnel are currently deployed to fight it, Clearwater said.
