Wildfires reduce California’s famous Napa Valley wine region | Abroad


Thousands of residents of the famed Napa Valley wine region, in northern California, have had to leave their homes due to the fierce wildfires in the area. The fire, kindled by gusts of wind, destroyed houses and vineyards, among other things.

More than a thousand firefighters try to control the flames. They are assisted by fire-fighting helicopters, bulldozers and other heavy equipment.

In Napa County, one of the most prestigious wine regions in the US, the fire destroyed nearly 4,500 acres. Chateau Boswell in St. Helena is one of the wineries that was destroyed. A five-star resort also went up in flames. On Monday, a total of nearly 34,000 people had to leave their homes.

California has been battling wildfires for months. Five of the six most devastating fires in state history have still not been extinguished, according to firefighters.

Across California, more than 18,000 firefighters fight 27 major wildfires. The wind in Northern California is expected to weaken somewhat, but temperatures will remain high for the time being. In the capital Sacramento, the mercury can reach 37 degrees.
