Roads are partially closed to traffic due to the spread on the highway of fire which is effective in the Castaic area in the California region in the US.
Officials announced that due to the fire called “Route”, 5 highways that provide transport between the regions in the south-north direction of the region have been partially closed.
The fire has not been brought under control yet, officials said, noting that settlements in the region where the fire has spread to the highway are also in danger.
In California, where fires have been battled for months, the rains are said to have helped ease fires in some regions but as a result of lightning new fires have appeared in the arid northern areas of the region.
According to the National Air Service, more than 1,100 thunderstorms fell in the region during the rains between the evening of September 9 and the morning of September 10.
Lightning also caused new fires in the Sierra Nevada.AA
