While the firefighters in the north and south of California further attempted to curb large-scale fires, have broken new fire near Los Angeles. Almost 8,000 people had to leave their homes during the night of Friday when flames were spotted on a hill in the north of the city. The Maria fire spread at Santa Paula in just a few hours over almost 35 square kilometers.

In eastern Los Angeles, hundreds of firefighters fought against the Hillside Fire, which erupted in violent gusts of wind in the San Bernardino district. In the neighboring Riverside district, the “46 Fire” drove thousands of residents out of the houses.

Authorities in California reported by Friday 14 major wildfires between the districts of Mendocino in the north and San Diego in the south, more than 400 square kilometers went up in flames 

As the forces reported, the conflagration broke out in a stolen car that was being pursued by a police patrol. As the car crashed into a field, sparks from the wheels set fire to the dried up vegetation. Unusually long and strong Santa Ana winds that have been haunting California for days drove the flames forward within minutes.

Overall, the authorities in California reported by Friday 14 major wildfires. Between the districts of Mendocino in the north and San Diego in the south, more than 400 square kilometers went up in flames last week. With gusts and temperatures falling, according to the National Meteorological Service, the risk of fire is likely to decrease in the coming days.

The Easy Fire in Simi Valley northeast of Los Angeles has so far spread over almost seven square kilometers of hill country until Friday. At least six homes were damaged or destroyed and about 1,300 residents were evacuated. The Hillside Fire spread to an area of ​​80 hectares and began destroying homes near a hillside in San Bernardino, east of Los Angeles.
