Dixie Fire mushrooms into second-largest wildfire in California history – The Washington Post

1 min read

The fire last week consumed the historic town of Greenville, Calif. and continues to threaten nearly 14,000 buildings, according to Cal Fire, the state firefighting agency. Dixie’s destruction is still dwarfed by past blazes, including the 2018 Camp Fire that killed at least 85 people and torched well over 18,000 structures. Still, authorities say the Dixie Fire has ruined several hundred buildings and injured three firefighters. No fatalities have been reported.
