(WETM) – Strong winds are fueling wildfires in California that caused significant damage to the city.

The fires have destroyed nearly sixty homes and more than 200 thousand Californians are under evacuations on Tuesday.

Winds fueled the Getty fire in the early hours on Monday morning and the fire destroyed over 124 structures. Certain power companies are warning that there could be new rounds on public safety power shutoffs even in areas that don’t have evacuations.
