 US California mountain fire kincald weakening Maria burning for 3 days


The Associated Press reported that Maria was the last large-scale wildfire in Southern California on October 31, when it started on a hillside in Northwest Los Angeles County. The area of Maria is about 40 square kilometers, forcing nearly 11000 people to evacuate.

Maria spread rapidly. The fire department in Ventura County has warned of threats to East Ventura, camario and Santa Paula.

Mark Lorentzen, fire chief of Ventura County, said that the wind direction changed on November 1, which may further increase the area of Marias fire, making it more difficult to put out the fire.

The cause of Marias fire is still under investigation. Edison Electric Power Company of Southern California, a power supplier, said Monday that 13 minutes before the Maria mountain fire, the company will re transmit power to the 16000 volt transmission line in the area; the company will cooperate with the investigation of the cause of the fire.

In order to prevent the strong wind from blowing down the wires and triggering the fire, Pacific natural gas and Electric Co., a major power company in California, and Southern California Edison Power Co., Ltd. repeatedly cut off large-scale preventive power supply.

The Santa Ana wind, which blows in California every autumn and winter, is one of the main causes of frequent wildfires. Santa Ana wind is called devil wind. It is a monsoon in the valley of Southern California. It comes from the desert area in the interior of the United States. It is extremely dry and easy to ignite wildfires. Maria mountain fire happened at the end of Santa Ana wind.

According to the California forestry and fire department, in Sonoma County, a wine producing area in Northern California, more and more evacuees are allowed to return after the wildfire jinkade covers an area of more than 300 square kilometers, 70% of which are under control. Pacific Gas and Electric has had four major blackouts so far in Northern California. The Fire Department of contracosta County determined that the three smaller fires in the San Francisco Bay area on October 27 were caused by the power equipment of PGE. The reason for kinkad is not clear. Pacific Gas and electric reported a problem at the time at a transmission tower near the fire. In recent years, there have been a number of large-scale wildfires across California, causing serious damage to people and property. Last years Kamp fire killed at least 86 people and destroyed 14000 buildings. California Fire Department confirmed this year that camp was ignited by a transmission line owned and operated by Pacific Gas and electric.
