(La Presse) A new weekend of fear for the residents of Northern California, where weeks ago one of the largest fires the US state has ever witnessed. The Dixie Fire, between Wednesday and Thursday alone, has destroyed 370 homes and threatens thousands more, fueled by strong winds and high temperatures. Much of Greenville was destroyed, as California Governor Gavin Newson visited. The politician walks the deserted streets and burnt houses with the police officers. Dixie burned more land than New York City occupied: Saturday night, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection reported that it was only 21 percent contained. Four firefighters were injured by the fall of some branches, while at least four people were missing Saturday afternoon.
