Wildfires have raged throughout the state for the past several months, threatening the lives and homes of many California residents. As of now, there is one harmful fire in Orange County that began Aug 8 and lies mostly within the Cleveland National Forest. The fire has been named “Holy Fire”, and though it spans nearly 23,000 acres, 78 percent of it has been contained, according to the US Fire Service. Officials have concluded that the fire was started by Forrest Clark, who has since been charged with arson. Full containment of the “Holy Fire” is expected to occur within the week.
