Devastating disastrous fires in California, caused by a heatwave and lightning, has been called a major disaster by Donald Trump. Donald Trump has also given help from the government to those who are suffering. Nearly 600 huge wildfires have been caused, and have burnt through over 1500 miles of land. Many people have had to evacuate their homes, some who later found their homes destroyed and are now homeless.

Firemen are now struggling to provide water to put out the fires and are putting themselves at risk. Statistics say that around 12,000 lightning strikes hit around the Californian area causing the fires.
