    California has been ravaged by intense wildfires since August, with over 2.3 million acres of land burnt, which is over 20 times more than last year. Gavin Newsom, California’s governor, declared a statewide emergency on 18 August, while US President Donald Trump approved a major disaster declaration for the state on 22 August.

    A devastating fire tornado has been caught on film in California. The video depicting the hellish phenomenon shows a flaming pillar moving over the charred earth, while a siren in the background confirms that firefighters have already arrived at the site.
