The LNU Lightning Complex has burned across parts of Napa, Sonoma, Lake, Solano and Yolo counties for the past 11 days. The wildfires within the complex were started by lightning strikes on Aug. 17. Across California, hundreds of other fires started the same way, with 20 of them being considered major.
The complex is the third-largest wildfire in California history, close behind the SCU Lightning Complex that is burning in the South Bay area in Santa Clara, Alameda, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Merced counties. The only fire in state history bigger than either the LNU or SCU Complex was the Mendocino Complex, which charred more than 459,000 acres in 2018.
The LNU Complex has led to five deaths in Napa and Solano counties, in addition to four civilian injuries. The flames have destroyed 1,080 structures and damaged 272 others, while 30,500 businesses and homes remain threatened in evacuation areas.
Providing medical bill assistance and financial assistance for the officers. Compton, California, Authorities searched Sunday for a gunman who shot and wounded two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies who were sitting in their squad car an apparent ambush that drew an angry response from the president and sparked an anti-police protest outside the hospital where the deputies were being treated.
The 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy underwent surgery Saturday evening, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in a late-night news conference. Both graduated from the academy 14 months ago.
The deputies were shot while sitting in their patrol car at a Metro rail station and were able to radio for help. Villanueva, whose department has come under fire during recent protests over racial unrest, expressed frustration over anti-police sentiment we urged people to pray for the deputies.
One of the deputies is a new mother who had just returned from maternity leave. She was working to earn a living to feed her child, cloth her child, care for her child. She probably carried pictures of her baby in her phone to remind her of the reason why she risked her life every day as a a law enforcement officer in such a dangerous city. Each one of these two deputies has a family, a child, brothers, sisters, and parents who love them. Right now, they are fighting for their lives and they need our prayers. This is the only thing that matters at this time.

This project is part of our focused on California in 2020, as we work as we work to support forest fire restoration in areas where significant environmental damage occurred. Million Tree Challenge to support forest fire restoration in areas where significant environmental damage occurred. The Cal-Avila-and Pismo fire has burned more than 400 acres since igniting. Post wildfire reforestation is necessary in some areas to prevent invasive species from taking over, to restore desired landscapes with beneficial local tree species, and to prevent soil erosion. Of course, the trees will also aid in absorbing carbon as they grow, to clean the air and water for local communities.
