This year, California has been hit with its largest wildfire to date. In the Mojave National Preserve, an out-of-control wildfire is leaving a trail of destruction. The fire started on August 8th and quickly spread, worsening air quality and causing thousands to evacuate.
The wildfire, known as the “Mojave Fire”, has scorched over 24,000 acres of land. With no end in sight and more than 20,000 residents ordered to evacuate, the wildfire is threatening an even larger scale of destruction. Currently, no homes or buildings have been damaged.
The flood plains, lowland dry areas, and mountain terrain of the Mojave Preserve is making this fire difficult to contain. Efforts to contain this fire have been hindered by the combination of rising temperatures, high winds, and dry land. On top of that, the steep and rugged slopes only add to the challenge of accessing and fighting the wildfire.
Firefighters from the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection are all working together to try and control this wildfire. Air and ground crews are being used to contain the fire and luckily, no lives have been lost.
Unfortunately, the destruction and damage from this wildfire is unprecedented. The forest will have to be replanted, and many animals and plants in the area will be displaced and their habitats destroyed. But, the brave firefighters and other emergency personnel are doing all they can to fight the flames and keep the community safe.
Let’s all come together and send our support and much-needed donations to the affected community. This wildfire has proven to be deadly and destructive, and any help we can offer will be greatly appreciated
