Mendocino Complex fire, the devastation looks very heavy

The "Mendocino Complex" wildfire is the worst catastrophe ever recorded in California. Since the fires started on July 27, 2018, more than 118,000 hectares have been swept through in a few days.

Extraordinary means have been deployed to fight the blaze and try to contain the damage. More than 14,000 firefighters along with a few thousand soldiers have been at work. Assisted by a Boeing 747 converted into a tanker aircraft, they have managed to control only 30% of the reported fires.

To date, the disaster has claimed the lives of 9 people and has resulted in the evacuation of 20,000 residents.
