I am a little confused.
Is it no longer the largest wildfire in CA history?
Alrighty, time to start the weekend on a positive news story. See you guys Monday.
It's so weird seeing so many people from Ventura County on reddit
TIL you can contain a fire by smothering it with mud
The past summer BC also saw its largest fire ever recorded, doubling its previous record of 500,000 acres to almost 1.2 million acres, ten times the size of this one! Mind blowing to think about. Weather and natural disasters just keep getting worse and worse lately.
The Thomas fire burned my school down.
Being 100% contained does not mean the fire is no longer burning. It means the fire is not expected to burn past the containment lines. It is still "creeping and smoldering".
Wait, fires have names?
Allegedly caused by SoCal Edison and their poor infrastructure, funnily enough my power went out right before the fire started...
What does it mean for a wildfire to be "contained?"
