Car accident sparks major wildfire in California

Car accident sparks major wildfire in California

More than 1,500 people in that area have been evacuated due to fires throughout the state.

The blaze broke out late Monday afternoon and quickly grew to almost 1.5 square miles, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said.

In an effort to get ahead of the flames, firefighters are carving out a containment line on a steep hill as planes drop fire retardant.

The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, one of the environmental groups Noel blamed, said climate change and suppressing naturally occurring fires are the reasons Utah's forests are inordinately flammable.

Global wave of cyberattacks hit India's largest port
A variant of the Petya ransomware , which has been around for more than a year, is being blamed for Tuesday's global attack. But researchers say it also uses other parts of Windows to infect computers, including seizing user credentials.

Firefighters in Southern California were battling a fast-moving wildfire on Sunday that closed a highway and forced residents from their homes around the area of Santa Clarita, a city north of Los Angeles, authorities said. The blaze burning in Riverside County about 80 miles east of Los Angeles is only 10 percent contained Tuesday morning, June 27.

A new wildfire that broke out Tuesday has prompted evacuations for dozens more homes in San Bernardino County.

In addition, a U.S. Forest Service researcher said logging probably would not have made a big difference in the high-altitude fire that is sending embers from tree-to-tree over long distances - normal for the ecosystem.

On California's Central Coast, evacuation orders remain in place for sparsely populated rural areas of San Luis Obispo County east of the town of Santa Margarita due to a almost 2-square-mile (5 sq. kilometer) fire. The blaze was 20 percent contained at midday Tuesday.

Britt McHenry Hints That ESPN Fired Her For Conservative Beliefs
Unlike them, though, she did once tweet a photo of her with GOP Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (which was later deleted as well). More importantly, a ton of sideline reporters, analysts, and other non-host, content contributors like McHenry did get laid off.

About 16 million people remained affected by heat warnings and advisories in Southern California, southern Nevada and parts of Arizona.

The department issued an evacuation warning for Highland Home Road east to Highway 243, including communities of Poppet Flats and Silent Valley.

That includes a new incident command center for those battling the blaze. John Cammack was left with severe burns after falling from a fire engine when the winds shifted and the flames changed direction.

Crews in California, meanwhile, had to deal with two new powerful and fast-growing fires, and Arizona firefighters had to ground aircraft because of unauthorised drones over a blaze near Flagstaff.

Northern Ireland party signs deal to support May's government
Al Jazeera reporter Neave Barker, wrote that under the agreement, Northern Ireland will receive a £1.3bn fiscal package.

State Sen. Evan Vickers (R-Cedar City) said the Brian Head fire has caused anxiety locally because of the lost cabins and lost memories, as well as the safety of firefighters like his son-in-law.
