According to representatives of the fire Department, more than 2,800 firefighters continue to fight the fire. One of the firefighters died, victims of the elements has also become one of the locals.

“Thomas” has destroyed more than one thousand different buildings and brought damage amounting to more than 177 million dollars.

To “Thomas,” the largest forest fire in California was fire “Cedar” in 2003, which burned more than 110 thousand forests.

Officials of the fire brigade say that until 1932, may have happened more large-scale fires, but then their classification was not as accurate as in our time.
