On November 8, 2018 the Camp fire began. Because of its rapid spread, the fire continued for several weeks and eventually destroyed almost 14,000 homes, and 514 businesses. The Camp Fire – the deadliest fire in history, and has covered more than 153,000 acres, roughly the size of Chicago. Cal Fire, the state’s forestry and fire protection agency, announced the Camp Fire was completely contained early Sunday, November 25, 2018. That doesn’t mean the fire is out. It indicates that a fire has been cut around the entirety of the remaining blaze, preventing it from reaching trees.
