    i bet biden would be helping somehow nov cant come soon enough

    • Kevin Dahlberg says:

      Biden doesn’t even know where he is. Come on man, can’t even find his way out the basement.

    • Computer User says:

      @Kevin Dahlberg Fox news loved his speech fool. yes you are a fool.

    • Kevin Dahlberg says:

      @Computer User calm down corn pop, dont challenge me to a push up contest. Bidens speech was read off a teleprompter and he some how managed to still have gaffs and his speech writers plagiarized it. But I will agree Biden did amazingly well for a dementia patient.

    • Computer User says:

      @Kevin Dahlberg Remember reagan and his dementia/alzheimers, I dont remember spiel about iran contra? I remember it well. He forgot alot.

  • Steven Williams says:

    I’m so happy that California has taken their garbage recycling project to a whole new level.

    • Computer User says:

      Why didnt trump give rakes to the illegals like he promised? another broken promise.

  • Steven Wolff says:

    The Holy Bible foretold that a specific generation would experience an ultimate convergence of many world conditions, events, and astronomical signs indicating the end of the age and Jesus’ promised second coming. I have created a space to share about many of the biblically foretold events and signs coming to pass which is helping make sense of the times we are living in. God bless.

    It is a sad day when Americans can’t ask their president for help in calamity like this

  • Rhonda Eby says:

    So sad, terrible, prayers 🙏 😢

  • Buckeye Fangirl19 says:

    Omg, how awful. Sincere prayers for all of you there: residents; firefighters and 1st responders; pets and wildlife.

    • Computer User says:

      Why dont your God send rain?

  • MrEiht says:

    Defund fire fighters next, if you are REAL Americans! Lol.

    • Computer User says:

      Let California burn, while trump fiddles.

  • Flipgurujn says:

    California helped the Aussies fight their fires. Hope they return the favor.✌

  • PunchNugget says:

    Stay home!

    No, go riot!!!!


    What a year so far….

    • Sierra Bravo says:

      Life is precious!!!
      No, shoot it!!!

  • K R says:

    Never heard of States asking for international help like this before. How does that work?

    • Gondwanaland says:

      No? it’s common, America, Canada and NZ sent firefighters to Australia earlier this year. Sadly 3 of the American firefighters were killed during our bushfires.
      In 2018 Australia, New Zealand and Canada sent firefighters to California and probably will again this time.
      It is a reciprocal arrangement that has been in place for years.
      Unfortunately Australia has experienced another bushfire just this week.That marks an early start to our season.
      I guess our raking was not up to scratch.

  • Tim A says:

    where is the best place to donate to the fire services in Cali? After the world responded so generously towards Australia when we were burning, would be nice to return the favour!

  • Chloe Stevenson says:

    And global warming is happening

  • mrzack1520 says:


    • Arazith says:

      Even China likely doesn’t have the manpower to be able to both cut and get rid of all the dry brush here, and to keep it maintained every few weeks. That stuff grows too fast. Australia has similar plants.

  • Gustavo B says:

    UuI’m iuoui

  • Mike Daegu says:

    Luckily, they have a president that will help and send aid promptly. I am sure Trump will really take charge of this situation….even though clearly these people did not rake the leaves in the forest very well.

    • Kevin Dahlberg says:

      Trump did after the grass valley fires so why would now be any different even though your politicians are responsible for the mess you are in, time to practice forest management and clear the dead growth, trim under power lines and allow responsible logging. Funny how other state’s dont have this problem. One would think after last years fire’s and all the rolling power outages due to high wind you people would learn. And how is it you are so heavily taxed with one of the world’s 6th largest economies but some how bankrupt by trillions? What did your Democrat leadership spend all that money on?

  • dee b says:

    Hurts my heart to see those horrific fires destroying people’s homes lives , beautiful country and the animals dying in the fires and probably many suffering from burns trying to escape. Don’t see how any could escape in that inferno.

    Also firefighters long shifts warn out and some suffering burns.😥
    Like the lady crying in the video, I don’t want to think to long about all the animals and their homes as it hurts to much.

    God really sees those who do good and those who do bad. He gives a perfect reward.

    Satan knows he has a short period of time Revelation 12: 12

    To all the fire fighters and first responders. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Robert Brawley says:

    Again? Can we trade California for Greenland?

  • M Spears & Bobo Buddy the Senior Cat says:

    Two largest in state history?! Lord Jesus please help us! ❤️🙏❤️ I have seen a countless many that hate us and want us just to be gone and fall into the ocean, but I pray that your hearts are not hardened to know many of us our suffering and need the Lord and it’s NOT between dem and rep! We are still part of the U.S.A. but under this current administration it feels like the D.S.A. (Divided States of America!) Please pray for us and help us!

    • Computer User says:

      Why does your Jesus not send rain?

  • hawaiiflowerchild says:

    Must of had good insurance on those Horses to let them burn up like that!

    • Computer User says:

      In australia if they could, they sent the animals free.

  • TheUsername217 says:

    Rhode Island is always mentioned every summer.

  • JESICA Cuiza says:

    People, you need to pray to God and repent of your sins.
    Jesus is coming soon

  • Cherie Woodruff says:

    I read in the news that it was arsonist(s). Was it? My heart goes out to them people who lost their 100s of homes, the wildlife, and personal owned animals. Mother Nature is not very happy right now. I’m in Florida West Coast waiting on the hurricanes to decide where they’re going to go. You got to leave Trump out of this. His statement was that the forestry divisions didn’t prepare. Newsom could have had a lot of help all he had to do was ask. Those that lost their homes should sue Newsom for it especially, Pelosi and the Governor.

    • Computer User says:

      BLM and the antifa.

  • Matt Bybee says:

    The cabal and united narions are clearing out west coast for the Chinese and Russians.

  • Levent Oerkue says:

    Stop animal agriculture and all these problems go away.

  • Metropolitan Sound John Epperly says:

  • valentin sanchez says:

  • Julia Mara says:

    More power to all these firefighters..stay safe

  • The Pink Nurse says:

    I’m never going there 🙂

  • Devin Creisler Studios says:

    So 2020.

  • Jo Freeman says:

    We can build a rocket and send it to the moon, but can build enough water hydrants for firefighters to put the fires out before the fire spreads and grows every year this happens. I know. Stop building homes out there and leave the land to the animals that live there. Man always wanna build more and more commercial properties for home buyers. So man keeps the pollution and fire going what does that say about our environment???

  • Karen Piotte says:

    Those firefighters must be dead on there feet! I hope they stay safe!

  • Out Kingdom says:

    why in this kind of case, don’t they use drone..!? it is so crazy, many spies use drone for killing people and hacking or stalking but they do not use drone for this kind of urgent case….it is so crazy.

    it lasts for 4 days? Crazy

  • MajidulHaq . MajidulHaq . says:

    RIP all five.

  • Popsvlog says:

    why don’t Trump start a new branch of the military “fire Command” instead of “Air Force Space Command billions of dollars of military equipment sitting around doing nothing when it could be fighting fires in California. “747 super tanker” can fly anywhere in California in 20 minutes something about “foreign and domestic” “The approved 2019 Department of Defense discretionary budget is $686.1 billion. It has also been described as “$617 billion for the base budget and another $69 billion for war funding.”

  • TRUMP CLOWN says:

    I blame Trump!

  • Kosta Laskaratos says:

    Meanwhile Dump is golfing.

  • Crystal Rose says:

    It was so sad hearing the rancher cry for the loss of her animals. I know that would be killing me inside. My thoughts go to all affected. Ten years ago I used to live very close to where these fires are. There was even a fire in Napa one year when I lived there and I remember worrying about it crossing the highway and hitting the area where I lived. Luckily that time it didn’t. However, it messed up the air so much and I remember one of my coworkers had to call in sick for several days as the poor air quality made her sick. I have a friend who lives near the fires and I hope it doesn’t affect him and his family.

  • Samuel Beckley says:

    Courage, safety and success to all those people involved in the fight against the wild fire, especially the front liners firemen…

  • Nicholas Thien says:

    This fire should be in Portland together with all the RIOTERS

  • Bee Bee223 says:

    Use the dirty water from Flint and give the residents the clean water used for Cali fires

  • Taisir Tageldin says:

    God Bless America

  • Jason D says:

    Every year there are fires in a lot of the same places. Do these people not have fire insurance? We hear about people losing their home, but never insurance? Also, I don’t understand the thought process of someone’s home burning down, then re building in the exact same high risk area, just asking for it again

  • Linda Phoummalayvane says:

    This is sad:(

  • SoCal Gal says:

    ♥️ CalFire

  • Paula Keller says:

    Dictator Trump instead of sending help to California to fight the wildfires. He sends his Gestapo police to Portland and other Blue cities and states.

  • DJ Digital says:

    This happens every year.

  • Janean Marie says:

    And there are republicans in California that IMPOTUS refuses to help. Shamed by this administration. 🖤💙🖤

  • isaiah 57 says:

    Judgment americaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa*

  • Dynamo001 says:

    Those fires are relentless. This should be a federal crisis. Too bad we have a worthless president.

  • The Gaming Johnson says:

    Good luck from the UK!

  • Asim Mahmood says:

    Salute to those fire fighters
    I am a fire fighter from Pakistan and all countries need to help in such big incidents

  • Judgment Proof says:

    You may or may not realize this, but obviously America has fallen under God‘s judgment due to all the corruption it’s been spreading. Rumor has it that corruption usually starts in Cali and ripples west. The whole west is burning for obvious reasons. Your manpower and resources are stressed. Maybe you should find out where the fires stop, the very outer edge is toward the middle of the country. You may want to consider putting up a fire proof barrier, closing off that half of the country and letting it burn itself out. It’s obvious God’s cleansing the land, you may just want to step back and let him do his job. It probably won’t last forever, but it’ll burn out eventually. Just keep everything in check from about the middle of the country. I’m not sure if fighting fire with fire is really going to do much good, I seriously question that. Usually fire won’t go through water though, you may want to completely wet a boundary line down the middle of the country. You may have to evacuate the invisible boundary line, dig a water trench, maybe even a creek, river, something and bring water in because it’s a much safer alternative than controlled burns

    God’s warning: Judgment by fire

    Judgment by fire

  • Mawmaw Sue says:

    People people relax the human race is not an ENDANGERED SPECIES. With eight billion of us and still climbing ever closer to nine billion. That tells you babies are being born and people still die daily exactly the way it’s supposed to be, exactly the way it’s been since the beginning of time. Too many of you like to think you’re special and deserve life more than anyone else, but sadly you’re not special and you’ll live as long as you’re suppose to if you’re careful and don’t get sick or hurt so badly your body can’t recover. Think about how many billions of people who have lived and died on this Earth way before you were ever born. Rich , poor, black, white, yellow, red, green and purple on and on it goes. Just remember be grateful for your life and do more to help others than you do for YOURSELF. You just ain’t that special

  • Ariel Gonzalez says:

    Each year the fires get worse. So sad 😞

  • Surf Bear says:

    Thats why you should never sin. Starting wars, bombing countries, killing civilians all just for profit, and the Glory of the America Empire. Just like Rome burns under Nero, today fire burns under Donald Dumb. God is punishing the sinners. Repent and follow God before its too late

  • Jim Townson says:

    I think it is absolutely hilarious on how stupid and ignorant so many people are in California you are literally causing these fires and then you’re asking yourself why all the fires here like G look at your environmental laws.

    Why don’t this happen in other states look at Virginia Tennessee Kentucky West Virginia these are heavily wooded states with lightning happening all the time yet there’s no fires.

    The difference is they don’t have the environmental laws California does you are literally causing the fire enjoy it you voted for these ignorant people to pass these environmental laws you deserve everything you get congratulations on losing your house your family and your property you voted for them you got what you deserved.
