Largest Fire In Los Angeles History 

September 14, 2017 | | Comments Off on Largest Fire In Los Angeles History 

Fast moving fires pummeled through the Verdugo mountains effecting multiple cities… La Crescenta, Glendale, Sun Valley and Burbank – starting on Friday morning.

Burbank and Glendale Fire Departments teamed up with the Los Angeles County Fire Department to help stop this record breaking fire. Hundreds of people were forced to evacuate their homes, in fear they might be in danger. Evacuation shelters were set up in Sunland and Burbank for those who had nowhere to go.


This wild fire moved and grew very quickly, taking over more than 7,000 acres of land in the shortest amount of time making it the largest fire in Los Angeles history! Eventually destroying three houses and damaging one. Hundreds of fire fighters battled these flames all through the weekend, leaving at least two firemen affected from heat exhaustion.


The Los Angeles Times stated that California Gov. Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency for Los Angeles County on Sunday due to the ongoing La Tuna wildfire along with 2 other Northern California counties where fires have continued to burn thousands of acres all together. The cause of these fires are all still under investigation until further notice.


This fire came at the worst time of the year and during the hottest weekend Los Angeles has had in a long time, with temperatures reaching 106. Many are wondering why this fire spread like it did, along with all the other horrendous events going on across the United States, and if “global warming” has anything to do with it. There are several ingredients required for wildfires and climate is one of them.
