Largest Wildfire in California History Still Growing

JMjy^8p+VI=cj

The largest wildfire in California's history continues to grow. Hot and windy conditions have tested firefighters across the state.

The Northern California fire by the Mendocino National Forest has now destroyed 1,178 square kilometers. That is nearly the size of Los Angeles.

U.S. President Donald Trump has declared a "major disaster" in the state. Trump also wrote on Twitter that the wildfires are growing because of "bad environmental laws." He said the laws do not permit, in his words, "massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized."

A spokesman for Cal Fire did not comment on Trump's tweet. But the spokesman did say that firefighters have enough water to fight the fires.
