Erskine Fire Kills Two in California
A deadly wildfire in California has claimed lives and dozens of homes.
According to WeatherNation affiliate KBAK in Bakersfield, California, two people are dead and 150 homes have been lost in the fast-developing Erskine Fire that continued to rage in Kern County, California.
As of late Sunday, the cause off the fire was still unknown. It had burned nearly 37,000 acres at only 10 percent containment, although the U.S. Forest Service expected containment of the fire by Thursday.
Fire conditions could be enhanced as heat advisories are in place across interior southern California, and as is usual during the peak of the region’s typical dry season, no rain is in the forecast for the forseeable future.
