California's surging Caldor Fire sparks mandatory evacuations near Lake Tahoe

California's swelling Caldor Fire triggered another mandatory evacuation order for South Lake Tahoe on Monday, along with other communities near the region.

Driving the news: The order, effective Monday, affects more than 100,000 residents in El Dorado County. Traffic was gridlocked on Highway 50, as people fled South Lake Tahoe.


State of play: The blaze was continuing to expand within and near the Lake Tahoe Basin, with winds of up to 50 mph, per the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service extended its red flag warning through Wednesday.

  • Evacuation orders for communities in Amador County were issued Sunday night as the fire approached the Lake Tahoe Basin.

By the numbers: The Caldor Fire had grown to 177,260 acres on Monday, according to Cal Fire. It was 14% contained.

Our thought bubble, via Axios' Andrew Freedman:Climate change, along with decades of land management policies, is leading to larger wildfires in the West. It's also creating more frequent extreme fire weather conditions that lead to wildfires that are nearly impossible to contain.

  • Nine out of 10 of California's largest wildfires on record have occurred since 2010.
  • A¬†sweeping UN-sponsored¬†Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report published this month found that the connection between human emissions of greenhouse gases and global warming is "unequivocal."

Editor's note: This article has been updated with details of the gridlocked traffic.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
