20 houses were reduced to ash. The fire, which broke out in the bush in the south of the US state of California, grew rapidly due to strong winds and spread to the rich residential area where million-dollar houses are located.
In the statement made by the authorities, it was stated that at least 20 houses were burned to ashes in the fire that broke out in the Orange County city of Laguna Niguel.
An evacuation order was given last night due to the fire that spread over an area of approximately 80 hectares.
It was learned that no injuries or casualties were reported in the fire.
About 100 homes have been evacuated, Orange County Fire Chief Brian Fennessy said in a statement, noting that the number of homes affected by the fire could increase.
Expressing that there is a historical drought in California due to climate change, Fennessy said that bushes, which are normally resistant to flames, burned faster than ever due to drought.
Fennessy stated that there was no other major fire in the south of the state, and noted that the firefighters continued their firefighting efforts in the region.
