Dixie Fire becomes largest wildfire of 2021 in California

California Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in four counties and expanded evacuation orders as the Dixie Fire becomes the largest wildfire so far this year in California, burning over 180,000 acres (730 sq km) and destroying homes.

Smartphone footage shows the fire burning a northern California forest on Saturday night. Experts fear the 2021 wildfire season in the United States could be even worse than the historic 2020 fires.
