A family of Ukrainians from California fell into a fire trap on the highway. VIDEO
A talented 10-year-old violinist from Ukraine, Carolina Protsenko, who lives in California and is known both in the United States and outside the country, along with her mother almost ended up in a fire trap on the road, open for emergency evacuation of people in dangerous areas of the state covered by forest fires. A woman with a child had to drive through the road around which houses and forests were burning.
In the video recorded by the car registrar, you can hear how the mother calms her daughter and asks her to pray (both speak Russian), but at some point she loses her composure - horror is heard in her voice. The child is scared and crying. The road is smoky, everything around is on fire, you constantly have to stop because of the traffic jam created by the residents, who are also trying to evacuate as soon as possible. Fortunately, Caroline and her mother managed to escape the fire trap safely. The video was published on Karolina Protsenko's Facebook page with a signature in English:
“For the first time in my life, I felt that we could die. We are trapped in fire. 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! ”
“With the right forest management, we can end the destruction that is happening in California. Wise up! ”, - wrote on his Twitter, US President Donald Trump, commenting on the fires in the state.
The day before, he blamed the fires on the state authorities, which, in his words, "poorly manage forestry." “Billions of dollars are allocated every year, and so many lives lost due to gross violations of forest control. Fix it immediately or no more federal payments! ”He threatened.
At the moment, three large fires are raging in California, one of which - in Northern California - became the largest and most destructive in the history of the state. According to local authorities, it has spread over 42 hectares. It was in this fire that killed 23 people out of 31. It almost completely destroyed the city of Paradise, and, according to data on Saturday, about seven thousand buildings in its vicinity.
Two more fires are raging 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 spreads towards the Pacific Ocean and threatens coastal areas, including the popular Californian 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.
