California Fires Reach 2 Million Acres

Defused sun light filters through smokey skies from the Creek Fire as Alpacas from the KT Lee ranch settle in to a temporary location in Coarsegold California, after being evacuated from their North Fork home on September 8, 2020. California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in five California counties late yesterday as record heatwave temperatures fueled numerous wildfires over the Labor Day weekend. The Creek Fire has burned across more than 135,523 acres and is zero percent contained. Photo by Peter DaSilva/UPI
