Across the state of California, three massive fires continue to destroy thousands of acres of land. The Camp Fire, located in Northern California, has burned about 130,000 acres and has become the state’s most deadliest fire recorded. In Southern California, another 105,000 acres have been ravaged by the Woolsey and Hill Fires. Statewide, there have been a total of 50 deaths, and residents have been actively evacuating, according to the New York Times.

Here are some ways to contribute and support the victims:

American Red Cross
Red Cross manages numerous evacuation centers for California residents (and their pets) seeking shelter.
