Extensive fire in the Sierra destroyed 360 structures, burning 175,000 acres


Over 175,000 acres of chewy giant creek fires in the Sierra Nevada destroyed and inspired an estimated 360 structures Mass clearance In the foothills north-east of Fresno, it is currently the 17th largest in the history of the state.

The fire was still 0% on Thursday morning, but officials said the weather could improve soon.

The creek fire from the Sierra National Forest has slowed its pace following eruptions in strong heat and strong wind in its first days. The winds cleared the air quite late on Wednesday afternoon and eventually allowed the aircraft to make a jungle line with retardation, as crews from the southern part of the fire worked to tighten defenses around areas such as Meadow Lake and Tollhouse .

“We are really trying to overcome this fire,” said Creek Fire Response spokesman Chris Wessel. “A lot of what we want to do is make sure whatever it is that stands out.”
