November 2018 Fires

On November 8, the Camp Fire erupted in Butte County, with wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour feeding the fire that burned an abundance of dry fuel.  Almost simultaneously, two separate fires erupted in Southern California called the Woolsey and Hill Fires. These three major wildfires forced the evacuation of tens of thousands of people in the counties of Ventura and Los Angeles.
