There have been numerous wildfires occurring in California over the past few years. Many people are being evacuated and affected by these fires. People’s homes, offices, and other belongings all have the potential to be burned. Some people can not get out of their home, and people’s lives are endangered. 1,650 acres have burned in the Kincade Fire alone. This fire threatened the lives of 7,000 buildings and over 200,000 people had to flee their homes

These fires have even had political issues. The fight between Republican’s and Democrats have influence on what is happening. Policymakers are trying to find ways of helping the firefighters and people that are affected by these fires and how to prevent them in the future. Democrats believe that this is a cause of global warming and that fires have increased since the start of global warming, but the Republicans do not believe in global warming at all and they believe that it is all a joke. This is going along to their traditional views of what is happening in our country. 

There is a problem with all of these fires in California. People and government are affected by this. The people are being put in relocations for those who can not afford other alternatives of places to stay. The government and their economy inside of the government is being affected by this. The money that the state of California has is mainly going toward the fighting of these fires, preventions of these fires, the setting up and maintaining of these relaxation centers that people are sent to. The government is what can help the people who can not afford and help the people that were affected by the fires.
