The wildfires sweeping across the state continue to rage on, burning down houses and forest alike. The area burned by the fires is now twice the size of New York City, notes one news source. Hundreds of thousands of Californians have been affected thus far, and that statistic will only continue to rise.
The number of California burn injury victims is yet unknown, but at least 7 people have died in the California fires. Sgt. Mike Radovich of the San Diego Sheriff’s Department said, “I imagine we will be finding bodies into next year,” a grim estimation that will probably ring true in the next several months.
