Fire Breaks Out In California, Thousands Evacuated

A fire that broke out in southern California caused panic among residents, with over 2,200 firefighters working to put out the fire.

The fire, which broke out on Friday near San Bernadino, has cleared through over 20,000 acres of land.

The blaze is given momentum by California's low humidity and high temperatures, stated the United States Forest Service.

Evacuation process saw almost 7,800 people evacuated from 2,600 homes, and it remains unclear when they will return home.

By Monday, five percent of the fire had been put out after it got out of hand on Sunday afternoon.

No casualties have been recorded since the start of the fire and, so far, only one home and two other buildings have been affected.

An investigation into the cause of the inferno is underway, as authorities suspect foul play, suggesting that the fire might have been deliberately started.
