Gender reveal causes wildfire in El Dorado, California

The Apple Fire was started on 31 July after a diesel vehicle had released "burning carbon" from its exhaust, meaning it had emitted sparks.

Fresno County Lt. Brandon Purcell stressed during a press conference that the trapped people "are safe" and "just can't get out because of roadblocks". The fires have burned more than 600,000 hectares. The fire has since grown to 135,000-plus acres, and is 0% contained.

More than 12,000 lightning strikes in the past three weeks have sparked nearly two dozen major fires, according to Cal Fire.

Monday evening, the flames were a quarter to a half mile away from their home, not far from Shaver Lake. "It's a little unnerving because September and October are historically our worst months for fires. And we see more of our wind events". By Monday afternoon, the evacuation order map expanded to include Riverside County. It was one of several fires that broke out during record-breaking temperatures that baked the state.

The Cal Fire San Bernardino Unit revealed the cause of the fire to be the pyrotechnic device from the gender reveal party in an announcement to the media late Sunday night.

CAL FIRE officials say a brush fire that erupted in the Oak Glen area of San Bernardino County on Saturday was caused by a pyrotechnic device.

On Monday, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or "Cal Fire", said that over 2 million acres of land had been burned by wildfires this year, a state record.

Temperatures reaching more than 43C were forecast for the Los Angeles area today.

"CAL Fire reminds the public that with the dry conditions and critical fire weather, it doesn't take much to start a wildfire", the San Bernardino unit's statement said.

"Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be held financially responsible and criminally responsible". "That, and the fact that there were surveillance cameras in the park", Milloy said, adding that it was a small family gathering. The heat had driven up power use in the state.

"Power outages were avoided. due in large part to individual conservation efforts", Newsom said.

"Governor Newsom has declared a statewide emergency due to the widespread fires and extreme weather conditions, and secured a presidential major disaster declaration to bolster the state's emergency response to the Northern California wildfires".

With the hot and dry conditions, California has suffered a particularly busy fire season this year, with more than 1.6 million acres destroyed so far, including in three of the biggest blazes in the state's history.

A fire in the Japatul Valley southeast of Alpine has burned more than 9,850 acres and destroyed at least 11 structures in addition to 25 outbuildings.
