In California this year, a large part of the forest has been destroyed by fire compared to the same period last year and now strong winds and strong winds are blowing in the area.

Los Angeles, Aug 21 (AP) A fire in California’s forests on the west coast of the US has taken a terrible form and people are troubled by the smoke. Smoke from the fire has already engulfed an area larger than the size of Rhode Island. However, fire brigade personnel fear that it may take a more frightening form in the coming days. Fires have destroyed much of California this year compared to the same period last year, and are now expected to worsen due to strong winds and dry spells in the area.

Bill Deverell, a professor of history at the University of Southern California who teaches about fires in the West, said, “We’re not going to end[the fires]in August, the magnitude and scope of the destruction that began in the summer of 2021.” Will increase further in the coming days. The pattern of the last two decades—heat, major fire incidents—is worrying.” He attributed the increase in such incidents to climate change.

Significantly, in the northern region of California, 1.5 million acres (about 6000 square kilometers) of forest have been affected by fire.
