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.

Brazilian President Temer charged with corruption
The latest statement comes after the top electoral court ruled in mid-June that President Temer should not be removed from office. He said that as a lawyer, he knew when accusations had basis and when they did not.

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.

McCarthy's lawyer aggressively cross-examined Bond about why she didn't call police or report her daughter's death to anyone. In exchange for her testimony, she's expected to walk free on time served with probation after she's sentenced Tuesday.

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.
