The smallest of the recent California wildfires, Hill Fire impacted just over 4,500 acres of land and is now 100% contained. Luckily, there were only four buildings destroyed in this area and fire crews are still working towards cleaning up the remaining areas impacted by the blaze.
With hundreds of homes and over 1,500 structures destroyed through the Ventura and Los Angeles counties since November 8th, Woosley Fire has been 100% contained. Air quality slowly continues to return to normal levels through impacted areas like Thousand Oaks, Calabasas, Agoura Hills, and Malibu. Clean up and hot spot searches will continue through the upcoming weeks.
The largest and most destructive wildfire in California’s history was finally contained after 17 days and impacting over 153,000 acres of land throughout Butte County. The majority of the damages and losses were located in northern towns like Paradise, Concow, and Chico. Though contained, it will take months for the teams working on the fire to continue their efforts of extinguishing it. The air quality is slowly returning to its usual state while areas closest to the fire still hold concerns for those who have compromised health. Recently, utility companies from other cities, like Arizona Public Service, have sent professionals to Paradise to help restore power.
Airports in both southern and northern California areas impacted have since returned to their scheduled flights with major airlines like United issuing rebookings for those who were interested through November 18th. For those wondering about their next timeshare resort vacation, there does not appear to be an immediate damage to the surrounding properties.
Though the smoke is beginning to clear, there are still thousands of people without homes to return to and entire towns destroyed. For those who are interested in aiding the wildfire victims, please check out these organizations to provide donations:
