LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. — Smoke from California’s wildfires has drifted as far as New England, more than 3,000 miles away. The major concern Friday night was the state’s Holy Fire, which has burned 18,000 acres south of Los Angeles.
CBS News spent the past two days driving around Lake Elsinore, where it was a common sight to see firefighters with their hoses trained on flames that were making their way dangerously close to homes.
A last desperate stand saved nearly all the homes in one neighborhood — a testament to those on the front lines.
The article goes on to state the following:
Even with more than a thousand firefighters battling the flames, some homeowners refused to evacuate.
Conditions are still extreme. Several times it has roared back to life and could yet again. Numerous hotspots remain.
It seems as soon as one fire is put out, another one starts right back up.
One fire was being carried by the wind over a highway and up into a mountain. The area is so bone dry that firefighters worry it could explode like a powder keg.
More than 1,000 firefighters, using 10 helicopters and seven additional aircraft, remain on the front lines battling the Holy Fire as California Gov. Jerry Brown declares state of emergency. https://t.co/185VdbUrEH pic.twitter.com/IzhyNfshQa

A State of Emergency Called #HolyFire
Be prepared. Pre-pack important papers and prepare to travel with your pets. Wild animals are being displaced. Be cautious. They are frightened.
Thank you to our Firefighters and extended personnel. Be Safe. https://t.co/Bk6sV6U3Rl
