Firefighters try to control California wildfires

Firefighters in the US are working hard to try and put out huge wildfires.

There have been 17 major blazes in the state of California.

Dry, hot weather and strong winds helped spread the flames.

Smoke from them has travelled as far south as San Francisco which is about 60 miles away.

Thousands of people have had to leave their homes and some people are missing or have died.
