California burns a record 809,000 hectares. For the first time in 30 years

About two months remain before the bushfire season in the most populous state of the United States, and thousands

firefighters fought the flames during the scorching heat.

“We haven’t seen anything like this in the last 33 years. This is definitely a record and we're not even close to the end of the fire season yet, ”said Lynne Tolmachoff, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) spokeswoman.

According to Cal Fire, at least seven peopledied in fires this year and about 3,800 buildings were damaged or destroyed. The last time this amount of burnt areas approached was in 2018. In the same year, there was a devastating fire in the camp, when just over 769,000 hectares burned down.

Some fires have now been eliminated by zero percent.

The agency previously reported on Twitter that 976 employees are fighting the fire, which continues to grow "in extreme conditions."

In northern California, over 200 people wereairlifted to safety over the weekend after a rapid wildfire caught them trapped near a reservoir northeast of Fresno. They were rescued by military helicopters.

Record temperatures over the three-day Labor Day weekend exacerbated an already dangerous fire condition.
