California evacuates residents as wildfire continues to spread


Thousands of people were under evacuation orders on Sunday after a wildfire in mountains about 75 miles east of Los Angeles exploded in size as crews totaling 1,300 firefighters battled flames in triple-digit heat while plumes of smoke were visible from as far as Phoenix, Arizona. California’s first wildfire of the season consumed more than 32 square miles, or 20,000 acres, of dry brush and timber in Riverside County, according to the state’s Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Crews lost control of the blaze after a software glitch mistakenly led officials to believe that the fire was 12 per cent contained.
