Global News published this video item, entitled “Dixie wildfire continues to rage in northern California” – below is their description.
The Dixie fire in northern California raged over the weekend as it converged with another wildfire, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
The blaze has incinerated more than 190,000 acres and officials warned that smoke columns could spawn lightning storms capable of igniting more fires.
The Dixie fire was only 21 per cent contained as of July 25, according to the department.
An evacuation shelter was established in the city of Susanville, Calif. and five other areas were placed under evacuation warnings.
The large, destructive wildfires in the U.S. West marked a heavier-than-normal start of the wildfire season, and they’ve coincided with record-shattering heat that has baked much of the region in recent weeks and caused hundreds of deaths.
