A fire’s path of destruction

Search and rescue team members of the Los Angeles Fire Department look for signs of possible fatalities at a village where 480 homes were destroyed by wildfire on Nov. 17 in Sylmar, California. The fire has charred 10,000 acres, burned 630 structures, and injured five firefighters. Around 40,000 residents were evacuated as the California state government declared a state of emergency in the whole Los Angeles area on Nov. 16 due to a series of major wildfires across Southern California.
