Wildfires in California have torched more than two million acres, the state fire department said, as an uncontrolled blaze forced many residents to flee their homes. People in San Francisco and elsewhere in California woke up on September 9 to a deep orange sky that triggered apocalyptic visions in a year already rife with disturbing events. Sky is so dark at times that it feels like it's night and not day. Some places are witnessing ash falling like snow, the cause being massive wildfires filling the air with smoke and cinders.

More than 64000 people have been forced to flee form there homes because of the fire and it is scary considering that USA also holds maximum number of Coronavirus cases in the world and with more and more people evacuating their homes in fear of fire it is knowing at the door of a Coronavirus explosion. More than 7000 fires have seem to combine with eachother
