The Thomas Fire, the largest of several wildfires sparked this month in California, has scorched 400 square miles, destroyed more than 1,000 homes and other buildings, and left two people dead, including a firefighter. "GOD's waiting"...
What We Know So Far
Major brush fires burning across Southern California have destroyed more than 1,000 homes and buildings, forced at least 190,000 people to flee, and left two people dead.
The largest blaze, the Thomas Fire, has scorched 400 square miles in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties and is the third largest wildfire in the state's history.
The blaze was blamed for the death of a woman who crashed her car while trying to evacuate, as well as a CalFire engineer.
The fires have been driven by ferocious winds, dry vegetation, and low humidity.
In a rare move, California officials sent sweeping emergency alerts to millions of people warning of the threat as wildfires continued to rage.
The extreme fire danger forced the closure of hundreds of schools and multiple highways across the region.
Officials said the Skirball Fire, which destroyed six homes in the upscale Los Angeles neighborhood of Bel-Air, began with an illegal cooking fire in a homeless encampment.
The third-largest fire in California's history has grown by 10,000 acres since Saturday, fueled by intense winds and low humidity. The fire had burned at least 269,000 acres with 40% containment, threatening 18,000 structures as of Sunday, authorities said.
However, firefighters managed to save hundreds of homes in Montecito on Saturday as the fire raged in Santa Barbara.
The National Weather Service issued red flag warnings for much of Los Angeles and Ventura counties on Sunday, stating the potential for rapid fire spread due to strong Santa Ana winds.
Firefighter killed in Thomas Fire died from burns and smoke inhalation
Cory Iverson, a Cal Fire engineer killed while battling the raging Thomas Fire this week, died of burns and smoke inhalation, Ventura County's Medical Examiner's office said Saturday.
Details of how the 32-year-old was killed were not immediately released, though Cal Fire officials have said an accident review will be conducted in the case. An autopsy was conducted Friday to determine the cause of death.
Iverson, from San Diego, had been with Cal Fire since 2009. He was married and had a 2-year-old daughter with his wife, who is five months pregnant.
Since his death, more than $300,000 have been raised in a GoFundMe campaign for the family. According to the page, the funds will go toward funeral and daily expenses for Iverson's family.
