CARL AZUZ, CNN 10 ANCHOR: Raging wildfires have forced more than 300,000 people out of their homes in California, and that's our first story this Wednesday on CNN 10. Thank you for watching, I'm Carl Azuz. A woman from the town of Paradise, which is in Northern California, thought her life was over when her car was surrounded by flames. She called her husband, who told her to get out and run; she did, feeling around through the ash until she reached a fire engine. Firefighters pulled her inside and bulldozer came through and cleared a path for them to escape.
This is one of the harrowing stories about the Camp Fire, the name of the blaze in northern California. It is now the deadliest wildfire in the state's recorded history. It has killed 42 people and scorched 125,000 acres — that's bigger than the size of Atlanta, Georgia — 6,500 homes and 260 commercial buildings have been lost to the Camp Fire. Council member from the town of Paradise told the San Francisco Chronicle that 95 percent of its town is gone and the Camp Fire continues to burn.
There are two other major fires still going in the state, the Hill Fire in southern California, has burned more than 4,500 acres. But as of last night, it was mostly contained, meaning surrounded and prevented from spreading. That isn't the case with the Woolsey Fire. It's also in southern California and was only 35 percent contained yesterday. It has burned more than 96,000 acres and destroyed at least 435 buildings, and hurricane force gusts of wind of at least 74 miles per hour or higher were whipping through the canyons. That only helps wildfires travel faster.
这只是“凯普姆大火”造成的其中一个悲惨故事，加州北部的火灾被称为“凯普姆大火” 。这起火灾已成为加州史上最致命的山火 。火灾已造成42人死亡，12.5万英亩土地被烧毁，这一面积比佐治亚州亚特兰大市的面积还大，“凯普姆大火”还烧毁了6500座房屋和260座商业建筑 。天堂镇议会成员对《旧金山纪事报》表示，该镇95%的地区被火焰摧毁，而“凯普姆大火”仍在继续燃烧 。
除“凯普姆大火”以外，目前还有两起大火在加州肆虐，南加州的“希尔山火”烧毁了超过4500英亩土地 。不过截至昨晚，这起山火已基本得到了控制，这意味着火势不会进一步蔓延 。但是“伍尔西山火”还未得到控制 。“伍尔西山火”是南加州发生的另一起山火，昨天这起山火只有35%得到了控制 。该山火烧毁了超过9.6万英亩土地，摧毁了至少435座大楼，而风力已达飓风级的大风正在迅速穿越山谷，风速为每小时74英里或更高 。这只会使山火蔓延得更快 。
