Fire fighter Heroes Battle the raging California inferno

With thousand of acres on fire in southern California. California has faced a mega fire beyond comprehension, with over half a million people being evacuated, this is the biggest evacuation in California history and has been well organised and has helped to save many lives. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the governor of California, ordered the states National Guard to help evacuate residents. Many of the evacuees have found accommodation and shelter in Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego which is transformed into a Guest House for fire evacuees.

With thousands of homes burn to the ground, and countless others still in danger, the tireless firemen have battled for four days to try and contain what seems like a loosing battle, with over 8500 fire fighter working around the clock, they got a slight break on Wednesday when the Santa Ana Winds shifted and died down a bit. The drop in the winds was good for the fire fighter and helped to stop the fires from spreading but it was not so good for the massive clouds of smoke settling over California causing breathing problems for everyone. The massive fires in southern California have been upgraded to a federal disaster by President George W Bush. Bush said he wants the people of Southern California to hear a message loud and clear from Washington.

"Americans all across this land care deeply about them,"

The president said after a Cabinet meeting convened to coordinate federal efforts.

 "We're concerned about their safety. We're concerned about their property."

Bush will be visiting the disaster area on Thursday.
