A family of Ukrainians from California fell into a fire trap on the highway. VIDEO

In the video recorded by the car registrator, you can hear how the mother calms her daughter and asks her to pray (both speak Russian), but at some point she loses composure - horror can be heard in her voice. The child is scared and crying. The road is smoky, everything around is on fire, and you constantly have to stop due to a traffic jam created by residents who are also trying to evacuate as quickly as possible. Fortunately, Caroline and her mother managed to escape safely from the fiery trap. The video was published on Karolina Protsenko’s Facebook page with the caption in English:

“For the first time in my life I felt like we could die. We found ourselves in a fire trap. Thank you, Lord, for our salvation. In this video I speak Russian. Mostly I just pray. I'm too emotional, I'm sorry. I just wanted to tell you, love, live and be grateful for every day of your life!”

California death toll from forest fires increased to xnumx person. Even more 250 thousand people were forced to leave their homes, notes Air force.

“With proper forest management, we can stop the destruction that continues to occur in California. Wise up!” US President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter, commenting on the fires in the state.

The day before, he blamed the fires on the state authorities, who, according to him, “poorly manage forestry.” “Billions of dollars are spent every year, and so many lives are lost due to gross violations of forest control. Fix this immediately or no more federal payments!” he threatened.

There are currently three major fires raging in California, one of which, in Northern California, has become the largest and most destructive in the state's history. According to local authorities, it has spread to more than 42 thousand hectares. It was in this fire that 23 out of 31 people died. It almost completely destroyed the city of Paradise, and, as of Saturday, about seven thousand buildings in its vicinity.

Two more fires are burning in Southern California. They affected the Los Angeles area and Ventura County. The area of ​​one of them doubled overnight to 28 thousand hectares, the second - 1,8 thousand hectares. The fire is spreading toward the Pacific Ocean and threatening coastal areas, including the popular California resort of Malibu.

The state has been declared an emergency. According to forecasts of firefighters, in order to fully control the spread of fire, they will need about three weeks.

A fire broke out near the town of Towsend Oaks northwest of Los Angeles. At first, around 75 thousand people were evacuated here. However, now residents of other localities to the west of Townsend-Oaks, including the popular resort of Malibu, are forced to leave their homes.

The cities of Malibu and nearby Calabasas are famous for the fact that many American celebrities live there. Some of them published messages about the fire on social networks. Some stars have their homes completely destroyed - read in our latest publication.

Further upstate, near Sacramento, another fire is burning. Its victims were five people in the city of Paradise - they died in their cars. Thousands of residents, schools and hospitals were evacuated from Paradise, which is home to 26 people.

Due to car accidents, the roads leading from the city were practically blocked, and many residents of Paradise abandoned their cars and fled from the fire with children and pets in their hands. The rescuers cleared the roads, moving the cars into the ditch with bulldozers to allow ambulances and firefighters to drive through.

In total, 16 active fires are registered in California. In a large part of the north of the state declared a red level alarm This implies that the fire can reach these places within 24 hours.
