California wildfires: jazzs pose’ extreme jeopardy’ for Los Angeles
Race to contain deadly fires as experts caution 80 mph gusts could fan kindles in already ravaged communities
Wildfires firing through California have entered the heart of Los Angeles as powers warned of an” extreme ardor jeopardy” across the city.
Firefighters in the affluent Bel-Air neighbourhood battled to save multimillion-dollar estates in the road of the kindles, which have destroyed homes near the Getty museum in America’s second largest city.
Video and photographs posted on social media established hillsides above busy superhighways covered in flames, sequences of houses reduced to ash, and firefighters spraying sea on walls of flaming.
The largest fire, the Thomas fire, has encompassed more than 95,000 acres, destroying more than 150 homes and peril thousands more in Ventura, about 50 miles (8 0 km) north-west of Los Angeles.
