   Homes burned in Los Angeles and Ventura county.

      Wednesday morning, Los Angeles officials said that at least four homes had been destroyed near a freeway and more remained at risk. In the Bel-Air neighborhood, the fire stopped traffic for miles in every direction, including on the narrow residential streets in the hills where many residents had been ordered to evacuate immediately.

  “These are days that break your heart,” Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles said at a news conference. “These are also days that show the resilience of our city.”

  “We’ve all been through this before,” he said. “We stay calm, do what they tell us, and pray.” This quote is interesting because the man saying this has a family and their place was burned but he doesn’t care because he has his family with him and that’s all he cares about. In my opinion, the way he thinks is beautiful.

The situation in Southern California is similar to what had happened in Northern California in October, when high and hot winds started fires that killed more than 40 people and destroyed thousands of homes. But, while Northern California has had a lot of rain that has essentially put out the fire threat, the south has remained dry and can cause issues and start another wild fire.

I believe that in situations like these, people should come together and help out those in need of help. “To form a more perfect union” like they say in the preamble.

    This topic is really upsetting to me and I wish we all could do something about it.
