Southern California blaze grows substantially

Southern California blaze grows substantially

The fire department issued voluntary evacuations for residents living on four roads in Riverside County, and evacuation warnings were in place in other areas, including the communities of Poppet Flats and Silent Valley. Do they know how the fire started? Yes. Crews were expected to strengthen the containment line on the south end of the fire.

As for the wildfires in California, about 10 percent of the blaze scorching up Riverside County-80 miles from Los Angeles-has been contained, according to local reports.

Firefighters are battling high winds as they fight the blaze that has spread to 184 square kilometres in southern Utah.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Insisting that logging could have cleaned up dead, bug-infested trees that are fueling a Utah wildfire, a Republican state lawmaker blamed federal mismanagement and lawsuits by "tree hugger" environmentalists for the blaze that has burned 13 homes and forced the evacuation of 1,500 people.

UK, EU agree on priorities, timetable for Brexit talks
EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier said he hoped they could agree on a format and timetable on Monday. A bigger problem may be for British negotiators to resolve what trade relationship they want.

Some flames reached 100ft (30m) high, while fire crews faced dry, windy conditions on Tuesday and a "high potential" for extreme fire behaviour, officials said late on Monday.

Weather is expected to continue hot and dry, with gusts as high as 25 miles per hour (40 kph).

The Frye Fire in southern Arizona covered more than 37,000 acres as of Sunday, with 39% of the perimeter contained, the forest service at Coronado National Forest said.

Approximately 1,500 people - including seven residents asked to leave the Bear Valley area overnight as a precaution - remained evacuated as of Tuesday morning.

PM Modi and I are world leaders in social media, says Trump
PM Modi also presented to the President a wooden chest with intricate inlay pattern that is a specialty of Hoshiarpur in Punjab. Discussions have taken place in detail with Trump defence and security cooperation between the two nations, said Modi.

Another out-of-control wildfire, this one on California's Central Coast, has forced more than 200 people to evacuate near San Luis Obispo. It has spread several kilometres east to an area around Panguitch Lake, a popular spot for fishing. The Utah fire began near the ski resort town of Brian Head, which is known as a weekend getaway destination for Las Vegas residents. Investigators say it was sparked on June 17 near the Brian Head resort by someone using a torch tool to burn weeds.

Stiff winds and hot temperatures have made the Utah blaze the largest in the nation at 78 square miles (201 sq. kilometers).

Sizzling heat is exacerbating the fire risks out West, where tired crews have been battling blazes in Utah, Nevada, Oregon and California.

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.
