Wildfires – California, USA

A wildfire burning through a swath of Los Angeles County for more than two weeks remained virtually unchecked Monday as fire managers struggled to gather resources needed to douse the inferno.

The Bobcat Fire is one of scores of major fires burning across the West – including Oregon, where at least six people have been accused of igniting some of the blazes.

The Bobcat Fire had burned more than 165 square miles in and around the Angeles National Forest as of Monday night, destroying or damaging up to 85 structures including an iconic nature center. About 1,100 households, an estimated 4,000 people, have been forced to evacuate.
