California wildfires: jazzs constitute’ extreme jeopardy’ for Los Angeles
Race to contain deadly blazes as permissions counsel 80 mph puffs could fan flames in already devastated communities
Wildfires flaming through California have entered the heart of Los Angeles as authorities warned of an” extreme burn peril” across the city.
Firefighters in the affluent Bel-Air neighbourhood battled to save multimillion-dollar estates in the path of the flares, which have destroyed dwellings near the Getty museum in America’s second largest city.
Video and photographs posted on social media depicted hillsides above busy streets covered in flames, rows of residences reduced to ash, and firefighters spraying liquid on walls of fervour.
The largest flame, the Thomas fire, has clothed more than 95,000 acres, destroying more than 150 the house and peril thousands of others in Ventura, about 50 miles (8 0 km) north-west of Los Angeles.
